Discover Hyper-V Hosts

For this scenario, your Credentials Library (SETTINGS > Libraries > Credentials) must include the WhatsUp Gold Hyper-V credential for the Hyper-V host you want to discover.

 Discover and add monitoring to Hyper-V hosts and associated virtual machines

  1. From the IP Address Scan window (DISCOVER > New Scan), input the IP address of one or more Hyper-V hosts. (You can unselect the Gateway IP and Local Subnet checkboxes.)
  2. In the Settings tab of the IP Address Scan window, click the checkbox in Advanced Settings > Data Collection > Expand scan to any virtualization environments. 
  3. In the Credentials tab of the IP Address Scan window, include the appropriate Hyper-V credential(s) in your network scan. (Including the Hyper-V credential to the hypervisor/host enables WhatsUp Gold to identify the device as a virtual host and query it for virtual machine information).
    Network nodes (discovered devices) display on Discovery Map and the discovery scan completes. 
  4. Select each discovered hypervisor and virtual machine and click the Start Monitoring button to add them to My Network Map with default monitors. 
    Lines of association show relationship between hosts and virtual machines.
  5. After a few minutes, check the virtual monitoring dashboard (ANALYZE > Virtual Monitoring > Virtual Monitoring Dashboard) to see data gathered from monitors of newly discovered virtual devices.
