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 of Klys Przemyslaw. Please follow him on Twitter – @przemyslawklys

He has written a ton of open source modules for reporting in HTML, Word, Excel, and many other sources.

The module of his that I leveraged for this report was PSWriteHTML.

It can be found at:

https://github.com/EvotecIT


 

My Script is pretty straight forward and has 2 functions:

  1. Test-Server – Which tests connectivity to the Server Found
  2. Get-HyperVServersinAD – Which hunts for the Service Connection Point “Microsoft Hyper-V” object

Here is the Github Link to my Script.

https://github.com/dkawula/Operations/blob/master/Hyper-V/Find-HyperVServerFromDomainandVMs-Report.ps1

 

Here is a current working copy of the code

I haven’t added a mailto function into this script. What I wanted to show you want the output using PSWriteHTML’s (Out-GridViewHTML), which is a killer alternative to Out-Gridview.

This Function not only build up the HTML Code required; it also gives buttons on the webpage to export to CSV,Excel,or PDF.

Check it out below (The Search Box works great)

Here is code I used to generate this:

$HypervVms | Where VMName -notlike *Replica* | Select VMName,PSComputerName,State,UpTime,Version,Generation,IntegrationServiceState,OperationalStatus,CPUUsage,ProcessorCount,MemoryAssigned,MemoryDemand,MemoryStatus,MemoryStartup,DynamicMemoryEnabled,MemoryMinimum,MemoryMaximum,IntegrationServicesVersion,ResourceMeteringEnabled,ConfigurationLocation,SnapshotFileLocation,AutomaticStartAction,AutomaticStopAction,AutomaticStartDelay,SmartPagingFilePath,NumaAligned,NumaNodesCount,NumaSocketCount,IsClustered,SizeofSystemFiles,ParentSnapshotId,ParentSnapshotName| Out-GridHtml -Title "Standalone HVHosts" 
$HypervVms | Where VMName -like *Replica* | Select VMName,PSComputerName,State,UpTime,Version,Generation,IntegrationServiceState,OperationalStatus,CPUUsage,ProcessorCount,MemoryAssigned,MemoryDemand,MemoryStatus,MemoryStartup,DynamicMemoryEnabled,MemoryMinimum,MemoryMaximum,IntegrationServicesVersion,ResourceMeteringEnabled,ConfigurationLocation,SnapshotFileLocation,AutomaticStartAction,AutomaticStopAction,AutomaticStartDelay,SmartPagingFilePath,NumaAligned,NumaNodesCount,NumaSocketCount,IsClustered,SizeofSystemFiles,ParentSnapshotId,ParentSnapshotName| Out-GridHtml -Title "Replica VMs"

Here is an example of the .XLS export feature


 

I hope you enjoy the report and a new modern way of building HTML Reports.


Thanks,


Dave
