Deploy UEB Through Powershell on Hyper-V Hypervisor or Hyper-V on Server Core


Deploy UEB Through Powershell on Hyper-V Hypervisor or Hyper-V on Server Core



How to deploy a Hyper-V UEB on server core without Hyper-V Management interface. Hyper-V Management Tools will need to be installed on a computer but this outlines how to create the virtual machine where Hyper-V Management tools cannot connect to the Hyper-V server.


This document provides information on how to deploy Hyper-V UEB on server core or Hyper-V Hypervisor. Usually this will happen if Hyper-V server and the computer with Hyper-V Management Tools are not in the same domain or if one is attached to a domain and the other is not.


Hyper-V Management tools cannon connect to the stand alone Hyper-V server.


  1. Download the Hyper-V UEB and extract the VHD.
  2. Copy the UEB VHD to Hyper-V server. Example VHD Location: C:\HyperV\VHDs
  3. Start Powershell from command line by issuing Powershell.
  4. Type the following:
  • New-VM –Name “Unitrends Enterprise Backup” –Path “FULL_PATH_TO_STORAGE_LOCATION” –MemoryStartupBytes 4GB      -VHDPath “FULL_PATH_TO_VHD_LOCATION”
  • Example: New-VM –Name “Unitrends Enterprise Backup” –Path “C:\HyperV\VHDs” –MemoryStartupBytes 4GB –VHDPath “C:\HyperV\VHDs”
  1. Now the number of process needs to be set. Issue the following command:
  • SET-VMProcessor –VMName “Unitrends Enterprise Backup” –Count 2
  1. The virtual switch needs to be assigned to the UEB.
  • First determine the virtual switches on the Hyper-V server by issuing the following command:
    • GET-VMSwitch
    • After determining the appropriate switch set the virtual switch to the UEB by issuing the following command:
      • GET-VMSwitch –VMName “Unitrends Enterprise Backup” |    GET-VMNetworkAdapter | Connect-VMNetworkAdapter –Switchname “NAME_OF_VSWITCH”
      • Example: GET-VMSwitch –VMName “Unitrends Enterprise Backup” |    GET-VMNetworkAdapter | Connect-VMNetworkAdapter –Switchname “Production”
  1. While still in Powershell you can issue GET-VM. This will show a list of virtual machines that are on the appliance. Unitrends Enterprise Backup will show up in the powered off state.
  2. Start the VM – Start-VM “Unitrends Enterprise Backup”
  3. On a computer that has Hyper-V Management tools installed navigate to C:\Program Files\Hyper-V\
  • Issue the command: vmconnect.exe HYPER_V_SERVER “VIRTUAL_MACHINE_NAME”
  • Example: vmconnect.exe HVHOST “Unitrends Enterprise Backup”
