$Servers = Get-Content C:\Servers.txt
foreach ($Server in $Servers)
{
	$VMInfo = Get-VM $Server
	$VMHost = $VMInfo.VMHost
	$VMHostName = $VMHost.Name
	$VMHostGroup = $VMHost.VMHostGroup
 
	if ($VMInfo.PassThroughDisks)
	{
		$PassThroughDisk = "True"
	}
	else
	{
		$PassThroughDisk = "False"
	}
 
	if ($VMHostGroup -like "All Hosts\*")
	{
		Add-Content -Value $Server -Path C:\Servers.txt
		Add-Content -Value $VMHostName -Path C:\VMHosts.txt
		Add-Content -Value $PassThroughDisk -Path C:\PassThroughDisks.txt
	}
}

Also you can filter specific Host Groups like in this sample.

Hi Mih,

Maybe you don’t have enough permission to write into C:\. You write your Hyper-V hosts into C:\Servers.txt file, right?

You need to change Servers.txt file. You should add your Hyper-V host list in it.
