    I see the new tables for Hyper-V in the database though.

    Tommy,

     Thanks for your feedback.

     Any of the monitors with 'VM' in the name can be used with either Hyper-V or VMware, they are:

    •    VM Host Performance Check
    •    VM Instance Performance
    •    VM Snapshot Performance Check
    •    VM Instance Power State

     These monitors are also documented here: http://docs.uptimesoftware.com/display/UT/Virtual+System+Monitoring+Concepts

     We agree that they could be grouped/named more clearly.

    Perhaps there is a bug, but when I select a Hyper-V host and try to add one of these monitors, the monitor does not allow selection of any host. In the Host drop down, no systems are shown.

    Tommy, sorry you've having problems. Please contact support and submit a ticket. Let them know to copy me, Beth, on the issue and we'll have a look.

    Tommy,

    Were you able to add the Hyper-V host as a Hyper-V server, or did it get added as a WMI based server? A Hyper-V host can get added either way, but it wont get recognized as a Hyper-V server if added as WMI server... After it is added into Uptime, you should see it in your Infrastructure tab / view and you should have a [+] expand icon next to it and upon expansion you should see the guests... You can also easily identify it from the infrastructure list as it will have a blue windows logo by the side of it while WMI based machine will say WMI in their icon.

    Let us know how we can help!

    Best,

    Robert
