Last time I checked the hyper-V probe in Nimsoft is not supported in clustered environment. Is it possible to make support for this?  


We have a new Microsoft Environment with several Hyper-V clusters, and need to monitor that. It is possible to point to an individual hyperV server, but the problem comes when a VM is jumping from one host to another, since it looks like that the probe won't catch that so easily. 


This environment consist of 3 hyperV clusters managed by a clustered VMM instance. A setup like this in VMWare is no problem to monitor.

Hyper-V probe 3.30 version supports cluster monitoring along with kerberos authentication.

Hi All,

The existing Hyper-V probe is enhanced to support monitoring of Windows Hyper-V 2016 clusters and the probe is available as beta release in the archive. Probe would be GA'd soon, where it would also support kerberos authentication.

All of the HyperV solutions we monitor are clustered, most solutions are built this way to enable HA for loss of a host or maintenance.  Why are the elements not visible at host level as a minimum?

Thanks for confirming in this Mellissa. :-)

A potential customer is also feeling the lack of this feature, we did a PoC and he requested a trial period also. As it is, we will have to work around this by monitoring the Windows O.S.

This is a good idea. I am also missing this feature in my environment and would appreciate if a workaround is prepared as quick as possible.

I have just encountered the same issue with a customer in the Middle East. They have a clustered HyperV setup under Win2k12R2 and the probe just doesn't work in such an environment - end up with authentication failures (even though I have a local admin account setup that does indeed work).
