Status details

Status DetailDescription
Enabled StateIndicates if the Hyper-V guest is enabled.
Days RunningThe number of days that the Hyper-V guest has been active.
Health State

The current status of the Hyper-V guest.

Health state values are mapped as:

  • 5 - OK - The virtual machine is fully functional and is operating within normal operational parameters and without error.
  • 20 - Major Failure - The virtual machine has suffered a major failure. This value is used when one or more disks that contain the virtual machine's VHDs is low on disk space and the virtual machine has been paused.
  • 25 - Critical Failure - The element is nonfunctional, and recovery might not be possible. This can indicate that the worker process for the virtual machine (Vmwp.exe) is not responding to control or information requests, or that one or more disks that contain the VHDs for the virtual machine are low on disk space.
