I am in the process of setting up an automated script for building out new server environments in HyperV. I am trying to use powershell from a HyperV guest. Everytime I try running something like
NEW-VM -Name "TESTVM" -Server "DEV-VHOST03"
it returns an error
Get-WmiObject : Invalid class
At C:\Program Files\modules\HyperV\VM.ps1:445 char:34
+ $VSMgtSvc = Get-WmiObject <<<< -ComputerName $Server -Namespace $HyperVNamespace -Class "MSVM_Virtu
+ CategoryInfo : InvalidOperation: (:) [Get-WmiObject], ManagementException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : GetWMIManagementException,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetWmiObjectCommand
I found some other posts and tried
Get-WmiObject -List -Namespace "root\virtualization"
this in turn gave me
Get-WmiObject : Could not get objects from namespace root\virtualization. Invalid namespace
At line:1 char:14
+ Get-WmiObject <<<< -List -Namespace "root\virtualization"
+ CategoryInfo : ObjectNotFound: (:) [Get-WmiObject], ManagementException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : INVALID_NAMESPACE_IDENTIFIER,Microsoft.PowerShell.Commands.GetWmiObjectCommand
I am beginning to think I cannot get this to run from a guest, which really would stink, as I don't want to have all of this on one of the hosts.
The last thing I tried is
gwmi -ComputerName "Dev-Vhost03" -Namespace root\virtualization -Class "MSVM_VirtualSystemManagementService"
Which does actually connect and gives me the output I had expected.
If anyone has any ideas how I can get this to work or even some ideas I can try that would be great.
