A. VMM contains a number of PowerShell cmdlets, including the Get-VM cmdlet, which gathers a huge amount of information about each VM, including its status. You can use the format-table cmdlet to show only specific information, such as VMs' names and status, as shown below.

The command

                              get-vm | format-table ComputerNameString, Status -auto                              

gives me
