What do you mean by Physical Server? Do you mean hypervisor hosts? Or Window/Linux/… Hosts?

We have 7 Physical server where as 5 are windows and 2 are Linux server. no virtual environment

If I did not miss some fundamental information, I would say, currently it is not possible to monitor non-vSphere/Hyper-V physicals hosts.

Community, please correct me, if I am wrong here.

I have to say, up to now, I did not see an environment backed up by Veeam without any hypervisor .. . except some stand-alone hosts and notebooks (like mine).

One wild and weird way to monitor windows at least, is to enable the hyper-v role but not use it as a hypervisor :). Seems a little much though but I did this once, I can’t remember the reason why.

I did get some flack from the security guy saying that I had needlessly increased the “windows attack surface” i.e. nothing comes without a cost :)

Nice idea! But from a security perspective, I would not recommend this! @dhawankar you would still have 2 un-monitored linux hosts :wink:

Unless they are RedHat then just install KVM :) going forward :)

Those 2Linux machine are centOS v7.9 @vNote42  yes I can understand that security is a Major Concern, but we always need to find some workaround to make thing work for us :grin::innocent:
