Installing the Hyper-V VIPRE Business Agents
How do I install the Hyper-V VIPRE Business Agents?
As of version 22.214.171.124, the VIPRE Business Console has the ability to protect Hyper-V Machines without the need to install an Agent locally.
This is done installing a “Hyper-V Agent” on the machine hosting the VMs themselves. Guest machines can then be scanned through this Agent instead of requiring the Full Installation on each VM.
There is an Additional Charge for Hyper-V Agents as they are not covered under the Standard Subscription
Note: Click Here if you’re installing the Hyper-V Agent on a Windows Core Server 2008 / 2012 R2
SETTING UP THE DEFAULT HYPER-V POLICY
- Open the VIPRE Business Console and double-click “Default Hyper-V Policy“
- Confirm the Policy Server is set to the address of the VIPRE Business Console
- Expand “Exceptions” and select “Exclusions“

INSTALLING THE HYPER-V HOST AGENT
