Microsoft-Windows-Hyper-V-VmSwitch-Operational logs enabled but empty RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I have enabled Hyper-V-VmSwitch logging on a Hyper-V host (Server 2012R2), however no log entries seem to appear.

    The same counts for: Microsoft-Windows-Hyper-V-VMMS-Networking

    Other Hyper-V (networking) logs seem to work fine, for example: Microsoft-Windows-Hyper-V-SynthNic-Admin is returning log entries.

    What am I missing, do I need to enable a setting on the Hyper-V side?

    Thank you in advance!

  • Sorry, my bad. I think I found it..

    I do see Hyper-V-VmSwitch log entries under System!

    I was checking them under Applications and Services Logs\Microsoft\Windows\Hyper-V-*

    It was a bit confusing because Hyper-V logs also appear there.
