- Hyper-V Collector Manager must have the right to query WMI objects from Hyper-V hosts
- PowerShell must allow the execution of unassigned PowerShell scripts
In order to collect data from Microsoft Hyper-V hosts, the environment needs to meet the following requirements:
- The Collect SolutionPack Block must be installed in a server using Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 or later.
- The Collect SolutionPack Block must be able to query WMI objects in remote Microsoft Hyper-V hosts.
- The Collect SolutionPack Block machine must allow the execution of unsigned PowerShell scripts. To provide this capability, run the following command as an administrative user: PowerShell -C Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted.
Before you begin
- Core modules must be up-to-date in all servers because not all module dependencies are validated during the SolutionPack installation or update process.

The Test feature located in the Discovery Center under the Centralized Management UI is not supported for the SolutionPack for Microsoft Hyper-V. Instead, use the test method presented in this topic.
The SolutionPack for Microsoft Hyper-V provides a script that can be used to check if is possible to query all required WMI objects using the provided user. The script is in the folder <APG_FOLDER>/Collecting/XML-Collector/<SolutionPack_instance_name>/conf/. You must execute the script from the Collect SolutionPack Block machine. Use the following syntax to run the script:
TestWMI.ps1 -Computer <ip-or-hostname> -Username <domain-or-machine\username> -Password <password> [-NoPing]
- Remote Hyper-V host IP address or hostname
- Username used to perform remote WMI queries, in the format DOMAIN\username for domain users or MACHINE\username for local users
- Password of the user specified with the -Username parameter
- (optional) If the remote Hyper-V host is blocking ping requests, you must use this parameter to skip connectivity tests
