Hyper-V: Getting Host Information from the Guest VM

This post originally appeared on my MSDN blog:

Since I no longer work for Microsoft, I have copied it here in case that blog ever goes away.

While working on some documentation today, I wanted to know the names of the Hyper-V servers running the various VMs for our Development and Test environments. [These VMs are running in a Microsoft datacenter on the other side of the planet from where I'm sitting.]

Unfortunately, my initial search using Bing failed to find what I was looking for (at least within the first couple of pages of search results).

Fortunately, using an alternate search engine, I was able to quickly find the following (on the first page of search results):

Forsyth, Scott (2009). Hyper-V - getting host information from the guest VM. 2009-10-08.

Thanks, Scott, for sharing this tip!
