Checking Virtual Machine Health After a Disaster


Last weekend I suffered a human disaster in my "server room". Which is to say that I knocked down a shelf in my garage and accidentally disconnected the UPS. This, in turn turned off all of my hardware. An hour later I had fixed the shelf, reconnected all the wiring and had booted the servers again. I then had to make sure all the virtual machines were up and running. I had some problems, because one disk array did not come online automatically, but after a bit of cajoling I believed everything was good.

However, when you are using Hyper-V Replica this can be a bit tricky to check. You see, I have two copies of every virtual machine and one should always be off. After switching between my two servers a couple of times to try and check the status – I decided to go to PowerShell.
