Installing the Hyper-V VIPRE Business Agents

How do I install the Hyper-V VIPRE Business Agents?

As of version 6.5.2.2, 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.

Note: The Hyper-V Hosting the Virtual Machines requires a Full VIPRE Agent for its own protection

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

Note: Once this policy is set up, it can be used as a Template to create future policies.

INSTALLING THE HYPER-V HOST AGENT

  • Open the VIPRE Business Console
  • Select “Agent Installation” at the upper left
  • Select “Create Hyper-V MSI Installer Package
  • Select “Create Installer” and save the resulting MSI file
  • Run this MSI File on the Hyper-V Host System

All VMs hosted on this system should move to the “Default Hyper-V Policy” once this installation completes.

PROTECTING THE GUEST MACHINES ON THE HYPER-V HOST

  • Navigate to the “Default Hyper-V Policy
  • Select Protect Now in the VM’s “Status” column
  • Double-click “Default Hyper-V Policy” and enable Active Protection (Optional)
Note: Enabling Active Protection will require a reboot of the Virtual Machines
Note: There is no Tray Icon for Guest Agents
