Hyper-V integration

We have the Flexera agents deployed across the organization. However, for some reason, the relationship between the HyperV Host and the VM is not getting captured, like it gets captured for VMware.  These VM are showing up with alerts "this VM does not have a host".  How do we automatically collect this information. 

Thanks in advance.

Re: Hyper-V integration

Hello @flexeranoob,

Is the agent locally installed on both the host machine and each of the VMs?

Common data from the BIOS for the guest OS (that is, the serial number of the virtualized hardware) is matched to the host's list of
guest serial numbers. If you inspect the .NDI file for the host, do you observe the guest serial numbers appearing within?

If local installation is not always possible, then remote inventory from a beacon is an alternative option, see below for further information:

https://docs.flexera.com/fnms/EN/WebHelp/index.html#topics/Disco-Action_DiscoAndInv.html

Specifically, the following sections:

Discover Microsoft Hyper-V
Gather Microsoft Hyper-V hardware and software inventory

HTH,

Joseph

Re: Hyper-V integration

@flexeranoob - Yes, you must run the FlexNet Agent directly against each Virtual Machine under the Hyper-V host AND you must run the FlexNet Agent against the actual Windows Server that is hosting the Hyper-V service that is acting as the VM Host.
