    Windows Hyper V 2012

    Trying to set up replication between 2 of my Hyper V 2012 hosts but I'm unable to do so.

    In HyperV Settings this is what I get...


    HV2 Replication from Server 2012.jpg

    HV2 VM Replication.jpg

    What can I do to overcome it? Firewall is disabled. Every service applicable to HyperV is enabled and running.

    Am I led to believe that replication isn't supported in the free version of HyperV 2012?

    do they need to be domain members?

    From the information available it looks like you are trying to replicate within the same hyper V site. Replication is meant to happen between sites I.e to a backup hyper v server.

    Even as domain members I still get the same error shown in image 1.

    I can't even try any kind of replication because of the error shown in image 1. I thought I'd try it anyhow and I get the error shown in image 2.

    Did you configure the failover target before attempting to configure the VM on the primary?

    I know this will seem odd but try running gpupdate /force on both servers then try again, works for me

    How do you mean? At the moment they are two servers with locally hosted storage. The first step to enable Replica is to go into HyperV Settings to enable it, as shown in image 1, which I'm unable to do.

    Hyper-V will replicate between free and licensed as I do it here.

    Are they in a domain or workgroup or a mix?

    They're in a Workgroup. I have tried it in a domain and I still get the same error. What am I doing wrong?

    Can you manage both servers from the console without any errors i.e. add a new server to each or change settings?

    On hyper-v-server console - option 4 - configure remote management (should be enabled)

    Yup, I can manage both servers through the console on my Windows 8 machine.

    I can create and delete any VMs.

    That said, could it be down to my NIC settings? Do I need to configure anything with them?

    I've enabled the firewall rules "Hyper-V Replica HTTP Listener (TCP-In)" and "Hyper-V Replica HTTPS Listener (TCP-In)" on the Hyper-V 2012 boxes. Relevant firewall rules have also been enabled on my Windows 8 machine. Not sure what else I can do.

    Yup, I've also done that. If I hadn't then I wouldn't be able to remotely connect to either of my Hyper-V boxes through the console.

    Each box has been set up with an identical username and password.
