What exactly do you mean with "host HA" ?

Is that HA kicking in and restarting VMs when one ESXi node goes down ?

Hi Luc,

the meaning is that after the host got HA, the virtual machines are restarting on another host.

i need to know which VM's was restarting on the other hosts.

Sorry, still not getting your question.

What exactly do you mean with "after the host got HA" ?

Is that when you enable HA on the cluster ?

Or is that HA taking action when an ESXi node in the cluster goes down ?

let say that esx host was crushed abd the virtual machines was restart on another host in the cluster.

i need to run a powershell script that will sen an email with the restarted virtual machines name.

In that case the answer pointed to should do the trick.

Just add a Send-MailMessage cmdlet to send the email.
