Is there any way to get the network configuration of a Virtual-Machine from the Hyper-V host?

I need to get:

  • Default gateway
  • Preferred nameserver
  • Alternate nameserver
  • IP adress
  • Subnetmask

from both Windows guest and pfSense (FreeBSD) guest machines.

I already tried using Get-VMNetworkAdapter on PowerShell, but this returned only the IP addresses from Windows guests and not even the IP adresses from FreeBSD guests.

Is there any chance to get this informations without logging on and look direct at the machine's console?
