Problem

I have an IP address which apparently belongs to a VM in my cluster, how do I figure out which VM owns this IP address?

Solution

PowerCLI:

> Connect-VIServer myserver
> get-vm | where-object -filterscript { $_.guest.nics.ipaddress -contains "172.17.16.10" }

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
