ZERTO do not see Linux VMs on Hyper-V

  • Good day all,

    i’m evaluating the ZERTO to convert from Hyper-V 2k12 GEN-1 based VMs to VMware. It is mostly working fro Windows OS, using the VMware tools and adding the SCSI diver/KeyReg enable.

    Now with Linux i’m facing issues as the VMs are not showing up on the VPG configuration. While on the RH part of the check, i’ve seen the SCSI secondary disk is using hyper-v driver from redhat kernel base, while the primary of course it is the IDE.

    How do i let the ZERTO find the VM ?

    Of course SCVMM is working well and i see the VMs entirely on the SCVMM console.

    Thank you.


    Have you reached out to Zerto support? They can look into why we are masking some of the VM’s. Chances are there is something about them that Zerto doesn’t like.

    I had the same issue, but it’s the IDE drive causing Zerto not to see the VM.  Options are : convert the IDE to SCSI, but this might cause the Linux OS to completely crash.
    We created an OVF to then deploy it to the VMware stack.
