Virtual server location

Last Modified: 2017-04-14
I am new to a company and have a virtual server... somewhere.  I "know" it's virtual by running SystemInfo.

Need to assume that I cannot just out right ask someone.

Anything I can run on a server to see if it is hosting a VM?  Hyper-V is NOT installed on my "other" server.

Uptime on the virtual 2003 machine shows 15 days...  "Boot time" on the physical 2012 machine shows 12 hours.
