I need to get the iSM and PTAgent versions from AHV clusters running on the Dell XC platform using PowerShell cmdlets. Does anyone know if this is possible? I can’t figure it out and do not think it is possible at this point.

Hi @JasonStenack 

Please check the command below, this should get you started. 

Get-ChildItem -Path HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall | Get-ItemProperty | Where-Object {$_.DisplayName -match 'DellPTAgent'} | Select-Object DisplayVersion, DisplayName, InstallDate | ConvertTo-Json

If this does not work, I suppose you are hitting an issue we have noticed where LCM fails to populate the ISM and PTAgent versions due to python version being installed automatically is a 32 bit process and the DELL’s PTAgent/ISM is a 64 bit installation when done manually. 

Read thru KB-8701 

Let me know if this help !!



These nodes are all running AHV, not Hyper-V. Don’t think this will work.


Also, I need to be able to pull the information with the Nutanix PowerShell cmdlets so the results can be sent to a spreadsheet with a ton of other information I’m gathering. I’m managing hundreds of nodes and need to automate wherever I can.
