Q: How can I check Storage Migration status by using Windows PowerShell?

A: It's possible to query the WMI job that is used as part of the Storage Migration by using the Get-WmiObject PowerShell cmdlet. The virtualization namespace is used and the class is Msvm_MigrationJob. An example is shown below.

PS C:\> Get-WmiObject -Namespace root\virtualization\v2 -Class Msvm_MigrationJob | ft Name, JobStatus, PercentComplete, VirtualSystemName
