Monitor Hyper-V Guest VM's in Failover Cluster



I'm running a 3 node Hyper-V 2016 failover cluster. If I monitor the VM's under each host the sensors fail after a live migration. Is there any way to monitor the cluster in its entirety so that probes remain consistent regardless of which host they may be residing on? I have added the cluster but it only recognizes the VM's on the current host server, not on the other node.

The function over the SCVMM doesent work anymore.

We need it back in PRTG.

This is PRTG V.

Hallo Herr Scholz :)

As mentioned by email, currently there is no way (unless someone comes up with some fancy script here that can do it), therefor I'd recommend to also post this as a feature request as mentioned here.

Kind regards,
