We have followed the documentation on the website about the new way to monitor VMM using PowerShell. When I add a device (vmm server) and select the templates my VMM does not get discovered. The error in Auto Discovery Debug Log is.

When you execute the script like this:

PRTG-HyperV.ps1 -metascanVM -Computername "%host" -userdomain "%windowsdomain" -username "%windowsuser" -password "%windowspassword"

...and replace the % placeholders accordingly - what output do you get then?

Hi Stephan,

Thank for your reply. I get a list of VM GUID ID's.

<item> <name>XXXXXXXX</name> <exefile>PRTG-HyperV.ps1</exefile> <params>-VM 57EE253E-DA1D-4A74-8D1D-9F6A3554C5E1 -ComputerName '%host' -Username '%windowsuser' -Password '%windowspassword' -userdomain '%windowsdomain'</params>

Okay, I think I know the cause of the problem. I'll report it to the developer. Until then, you can create a EXE/Script (advanced) sensor using the same script and parameters as in the params field for each VM.

The problem should be fixed within the next versions of PRTG :)

Sorry, not yet :/
edit The bugfix has been merged into the latest canary :) So it should be available in the stable version soon.

Hi there,

Please download the latest version of the sensor (and replace all files). We finally fixed all the bugs so far and the sensor (including auto discovery) should now work with current PRTG version :)

Let me know if it worked out for you!
