The virtualization solution Hyper-V Microsoft enjoys increasing popularity. Not without reason, because with Windows 10 Hyper-V is also included as standard, at least in Windows 10 Professional and Enterprise Edition. Windows 10 Home users unfortunately do not enjoy Hyper-V, at least not without trickery.
If you work a lot with Hyper-V and virtual machines , you will surely sometimes be interested in getting certain information from installed Hyper-V VMs. This is usually the quickest and easiest way with Windows PowerShell .
With the following command you can get tons of Hyper-V information about a single VM.
Get-VM VMNAME | select property *
For the placeholder ” VMNAME ” you must of course use the exact name of the virtual machine. Below we have shown you the complete output of the Hyper-V information .
As you can see, this information is extremely extensive . The following Hyper-V information is available per VM:
This Hyper-V information is so extensive that the user generally does not need all of the information from it.
That is why we have summarized a command below that summarizes the most important information such as the name of the VM, number of processors, assigned RAM, dynamic memory activated, Hyper-V Generation 1 or 2, replication mode, current status and creation date of the VM.
Get-VM VMNAME | select -Property VMName, ProcessorCount, MemoryAssigned, DynamicMemoryEnabled, Generation, ReplicationMode, State, CreationTime
After the execution of the PowerShell command this looks like this.
Export Hyper-V information to CSV
Of course, you can expand this information and redirect it to a CSV file or a grid window. Then the commands look like this:
Get-VM VMNAME | select -Property VMName,…. > c: temp hyper-v-export.csv
Display of the Hyper-V info in the grid view
Or you can have the information displayed in a grid view , as you can see below.
Get-VM VMNAME | select -Property VMName,…. | Out-GridView
