Hyper-V Inventory

Automatically detect and scan Hyper-V server installations on Windows machines which, in turn, are automatically detected when scanning Active Directory. Virtual machines connected to the domain will also be detected, scanned and added to the inventory.

Hyper-V servers can also be scanned manually by specifying a list of machine names or IP addresses.
