Hyper-V Configuration Report

Some time ago I was searching for a PowerShell Hyper-V configuration report to easily get important information about settings impacting the Hyper-V hosts performance and functionality, but i never managed to find one that was suiting my needs so i decide to create one my self.

The script is made to target multiple hosts and create a report for each host. It gathers information by invoking an script block on each host and returning a HTML fragment to combine into a report on the machine where the script i started from, then saves it as a HTML report into the specified folder.

The report collects information mainly about the host storage and network, but also essential Hyper-V information for the VM switch and live migration settings.
