GetVMNameAndIPAddress.ps1

Updated: September 10, 2009

Applies To: Virtual Machine Manager 2008, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2, Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 SP1

System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) does not run agents inside of the guest operating system on virtual machines; therefore, VMM does not manage the IP addresses for virtual machines. However, you can get the IP address for a virtual machine that is in DNS by using the [System.Net.DNS]::GetHostAddresses method.

The following script gets the computer name and IP address for each virtual machine that is managed by VMM and is in DNS.
