The Management Pack for System Center Virtual Machine Manager creates resource kinds and relationships (associations) for critical resources in your Hyper-V environment.

Resource Kinds

Performance, health, and availability data are collected for the following Hyper-V resource kinds:

  1. Host Group
  2. Cluster
  3. Host
  4. Virtual Machine
  5. Virtual Hard Disk
  6. Cluster Shared Volume


Relationships among discovered resources are also created by the Management Pack, which are depicted in the diagram below.

HyperV Relationships
Note: The dotted line between Host and Host Group indicates a possible relationship as not all Hosts are directly part of a Host Group; the relationship between Host and Host Group only occurs in cases where the Host is not part of a Cluster but is still assigned to the Host Group.
