Get IP address of virtual machines running on Hyper-V – FIXED!

Big thank you – goes to Max Trinidad my fellow MVP from Powershell group…
Here is errorless script – much better than mine! 🙂
Copa, paste and save as .ps1 – then run on your Hyper-V server and you will get IP’s of your virtual machines…

Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

## – Use Line below to list all your Virtualization Class
#get-wmiobject -namespace “root/virtualization” -list

## – Load filter (or function first)
filter Import-CimXml{

    $CimXml = [Xml]$_
    $CimObj = New-Object -TypeName System.Object
    foreach ($CimProperty in $CimXml.SelectNodes(“/INSTANCE/PROPERTY”)){
        if ($CimProperty.Name -eq “Name” -or $CimProperty.Name -eq “Data”){
            $CimObj | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name $CimProperty.NAME -Value $CimProperty.VALUE

## – Collect WMI Virtual information
$getWmiVirtual = Get-WmiObject -Namespace “rootvirtualization” -Query “Select * From Msvm_ComputerSystem” | sort-object elementname

## – Build your results from your collected objects
ForEach($v in $getWmiVirtual){
    $vm = $v.ElementName;
    $VmObj = Get-WmiObject -Namespace “rootvirtualization” -Query “Select * From Msvm_ComputerSystem Where ElementName=’$vm'”;
    $KvpObj = Get-WmiObject -Namespace “rootvirtualization” -Query “Associators of {$VmObj} Where AssocClass=Msvm_SystemDevice ResultClass=Msvm_KvpExchangeComponent”;
    if($KvpObj.GuestIntrinsicExchangeItems -ne $null){
        write-host $vm;
        $KvpObj.GuestIntrinsicExchangeItems | Import-CimXml | where {$_.NAME -match “NetworkAddressIPv4”} | ft;

## – End of Script
