How can I easily list which Windows virtual instances belong to which host servers in our environment?

I'm trying to find a quick and easy way to go through host servers in our environment and list which virtual instances go with which host. These are all Windows servers and virtual instances. I have a list of the servers and which ones are hosts, physical servers or virtual servers, but I need to associate which virtual instances go with which hosts. All the 2008 and later hosts are using Hyper-V.

Unfortunately some of these are Server 2008 R2 and some are Server 2003. This is for audit purposes and over multiple domains with routing that is far from ideal. Thanks

Hi,

Try some 3rd party tools which are available on internet like Manage engine etc:

If you google for free hyper v monitoring tools then you will get various tools.

Hi,

Personally I would script it. I'm not up to speed enough with PowerShell to provide my own here (yes, shame on me!) but as you're doing an audit I found this on the Microsoft Gallery:
http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Powershell-Script-to-get-b716c3f4

To gather the following Computer Info from one or more servers: Name, Type (phys/virt), O/S, Svc Pack, Phys Mem, # CPUs, # Cores,  Active IP address(es) + MAC, MAC for All NICS, & Serial

Mike
PS: I would not bother installing an app just to do this.
