Hyper-V Hypervisor proxy agents require system administrator credentials for installation.

The credentials under which to run the agent service must have administrative access to the installation host.

Administrator-level credentials are required for all XenServer or Hyper-V instances on the hosts to be managed by the agent.

If you are using Xen pools, all nodes within the Xen pool must be identified by their fully qualified domain names.


By default, Hyper-V is not configured for remote management. A vRealize Automation Hyper-V proxy agent cannot communicate with a Hyper-V server unless remote management has been enabled.

See the Microsoft Windows Server documentation for information about how to configure Hyper-V for remote management.
