Server 2012 HyperV Replication


I am currently replicating several VMs from one site to another using HyperV Replication.  I have to manually check the status of the replication of each VM.  There is no visible warning when a VM is behind schedule.  Is there a way to be automatically alerted when there is a problem with HyperV replication?

Check the Hyper-V specific Event Logs for the message that something is amiss.

Once you figure out the specific message that indicates things are falling behind right click and associate a task with it. Set up the task to fire an e-mail off to yourself or admin team responsible.

Without third party monitoring that's about one of the best ways to do it.

I gave that a try.  I received an error stating, "The task definition uses a deprecated feature".  Didn't Microsoft remove the 'Send email' feature from the Task Scheduler?

See RobGilbie's How-To for PowerShell to fire those e-mails on the TechNet forum.

It's a bit of a ringer but once done it becomes fairly straightforward.

The PowerShell in the link I posted can help.

Still don't have an adequate solution.  The one I found was closest, but still requires manual intervention.
