The Case of VM’s not Showing up in Veeam One Hyper-V Infrastructure Object – #VEEAM #VEEAMONE #HyperV

Hey Checkyourlogs Fans, Today I was working with a client that was having issues with one of their Veeam One Infrastructure Replica Targets not showing any Virtual Machine information. I checked the alerts on the server and noticed that there was an alert about the Hyper-V Management Service not running. Well, this is where it would pull all of these details from. Sure enough it was stopped. Started the Service Within a minute or two I could once again see the Virtual Machine in Veeam One. I hope this help you out. Thanks, Dave...

The Case of Veeam Error 32768 Failed to revert VM Snapshot – #Veeam @Veeam

Hey Checkyourlogs Fans,   Had a ton of my Veeam Replica jobs fail at a customer site overnight. The issue presented itself with the following error messages:   Failed to process replication task Error: Job failed (“Domain Controller_replica’ failed to apply checkpoint. (Virtual machine ID 6FC739AB-3494-43E1-875F-81442AC2C3CB)’). Error code: ‘32768’.

The Case of the missing Service Connection Point in Active Directory for Hyper-V

Hey Checkyourlogs fans, This case occurred today when I was writing a new Hyper-V Reporting Script. The script needed to hunt for all Hyper-V Services in a Domain. Everything seemed fine until I noticed that a couple of the servers were not picking up in the report. Let’s start by looking at the query function Get-HyperVServersInAD { [cmdletbinding()] param( ) try { Import-Module ActiveDirectory -ErrorAction Stop } catch { Write-Warning "Failed to import Active Directory module. Exiting" return } try { $Hypervs = Get-ADObject -Filter 'ObjectClass -eq "serviceConnectionPoint" -and Name -eq "Microsoft Hyper-V"' -ErrorAction Stop } catch { Write-Error...

Building a Hyper-V Report using AD and PSWriteHTML – #HyperV

Hey Checkyourlogs Fans, I’m Writing you here tonight with some great news about a new Hyper-V and Azure Stack HCI report that I’ve been working on. I had a customer ask me to get them a list of all Virtual Machines running on Hyper-V Servers in their Domain. The problem was that they didn’t know how many Hyper-V Servers or VM’s they had running. This customer wasn’t using SCVMM, so that wasn’t an option.   Off to PowerShell. First Off à In Researching how to write crisp reports using PowerShell I found the ultimate repository.   It was courtesy...

The Case of Winrm.exe QC hanging in Windows Server 2019 – #PowerShell

Hey Checkyourlogs Fans, I had a call from a customer that had a PowerShell ISE session hang up on him on a Windows Server 2019 build. This was on a physical HPE Server that was brand new, and the OS install was just done this week. He took some screenshots for me, and we remoted into his system and could reproduce the issue. We tried stopping the PowerShell session, rebooting the server, and none it was working. Finally, I said for giggles how about we try this from an admin command prompt. Sure enough, it worked fine. After this...
