vCenter Host Gateway supports several third-party hypervisors. This enables you to manage more virtual machines and hosts through the vSphere Web Client.

Supported Microsoft Hypervisors

vCenter Host Gateway supports the following releases of Microsoft Hyper-V:

  • Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 R2

  • Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012

  • Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2

  • Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008

Note:

vCenter Host Gateway relies on Windows Remote Management (WinRM) to manage Microsoft Hyper-V Server. To manage Microsoft hypervisors by using vCenter Server, you must verify that you have configured WinRM on the host running Microsoft Hyper-V Server and that WinRM is accessible over the network.
