Server2012r2 cluster with 2 nodes and multiple VMs

Some of the VMs are not clustered.

I would like to use powershell to list the VHD locations of all the VMs, by node and by cluster.

Thanks.

What does "not clustered" mean? Are they connected to the physical nodes?

Off the top the following should work on each node in PowerShell: Get-VHD *

Yes, they are on the physical nodes and they don't show up in cluster manager.

The actual command turns out to be: get-vmharddisdrive * | format-list  > hardrivelist.txt

But who's counting?  :)

(the format-list is needed if you actually want to be able to see the results and sending it to a file so they don't all just scroll right past)
