I know I can browse to the storage presented to the Hyper-V server with the filesystem and list virtual machine names that are stored there. I can propably write a powershell script to list what vms are on each storage too. What I want to know is if there is a way to list what virtual machines are running on a particular storage in vmm?

In particular there is a way to list open files and processes on any particular storage.

I am not sure what way you are thinking about, could you be more specific? I was hoping for a solution through VMM, buty all other suggestions are welcome.

Hi Itnifl,

Did you tried my Powershell script for Hyper-V Dashboard?

Another option is to try this.

Get-Cluster |Get-ClusterNode |Foreach {Get-VM -ComputerName $_.Name |Where {$_.Path -match "Volume1"}}
