View IP address(es) of VM through a GUI RRS feed

  • Question

  • I realize that there are lots of ways with scripts to obtain the IP address of a VM, but I can't believe that there's not a simple way through either the HVM, FCM, or SCVMM to get the IP address of a VM using a GUI - without a script. This is basic, basic stuff that's been available in vCenter for ages:

    Is there really no way to do this, even in Server 2012?

  • Hi!

    Actually, the virtual machines IP address is shown in the network tab in Server 2012/Windows 8 Hyper-V Manager. It requires that the VM has a supported OS and integration services installed, otherwise IP won't be resolved.

  • Perfect - thank you! I don't mean to shoot the messenger, but I really don't like how Microsoft forces me to use FCM for some tasks and HVM for others, and how SCVMM (which I think of as the vCenter equivalent) can't combine all of this functionality into one pane of glass like I think it should.

  • You can also use PowerShell - Get-VMNetworkAdapter

    SCVMM on the other hand...  It is not bubbled up yet.
