Adding an Azure Hypervisor for Automatic Scaling

If you have not yet added an Azure hypervisor, you must create a new Azure hypervisor to control operations for scaling out Azure access nodes.

Before You Begin

Verify that the Command Center contains a server that represents an Azure cloud access node. You will select the Azure cloud access node as part of creating the hypervisor.

For more information, see Getting Started.


  1. From the navigation pane, go to Protect > Virtualization.

    The Virtual machines page appears.

  2. On the Hypervisors tab, click Add hypervisor.

  3. From the Select vendor list, select Microsoft Azure.

  4. In the Hypervisor name box, enter a descriptive name for the hypervisor.

  5. Enter the host or the account information for traditional authentication:

    • Subscription ID: Enter the subscription ID for the Azure account.

    • Tenant ID: Enter the tenant ID associated with the Azure account.

    • Application ID: Enter the application ID associated with the tenant.

    • Application password: Enter the password for the application.

    You cannot configure automatic scaling for hypervisors that use the managed identity authentication method.

  6. From the Access nodes list, select the Azure cloud access node.

    The Azure cloud access node must be installed with Commvault version 11.21 or later

  7. Click Save.

What to Do Next

Configure automatic scaling on the hypervisor. For instructions, see Configuring a Hypervisor for Automatic Scaling.
