We have a client who has some Hyper-V systems, but they are not running an SCVMM server to manage their Hyper-V hosts. We have to set their Hyper-V VMs up for DR using Zerto. Everything I am reading says an SCVMM is required, please confirm. If it is still possible, please let me know what my options are. Please be specific as I have very little experience with Hyper-V.
This is AJ from Zerto Support. SCVMM is mandatory in Hyper-V in order for Zerto to function. A standalone host or Hyper-V Manager is not supported by Zerto.
Is SCVMM still necessary with version 8.5?
Yes, Hyper-V is still required in the latest version of Zerto.
