        • Hi Chris, love the script and works manually but when using with schedule task there’s nothing in the body of the email. I would love to get this going but hitting a brick wall. I used Write-Host $status but didn’t help. Hoping you can head me in the right direction please? I cannot find anything that helps me.

          • Hi Shane, sorry for the long delay, I’ve just seen this message. I assume you may have resolved this by now? But I would assume the account running the scheduled task doesn’t have the correct permissions for Hyper-V?
