dissect.target.loaders.hyperv.is_hyperv_xml(path: pathlib.Path) bool#

Return if an XML file is a valid Hyper-V configuration.

Parameters:

path – Path to the file to check.

dissect.target.loaders.hyperv.xml_as_dict(element: xml.etree.ElementTree.Element, root: dict | None = None) dict#

Convert a Hyper-V XML file into a dictionary.

Recursively converts all XML elements into a correctly typed dictionary.

Parameters:
  • element – The current element to convert.

  • root – The dictionary object to use as current root.

class dissect.target.loaders.hyperv.HyperVLoader(path: pathlib.Path, **kwargs)#

Bases: dissect.target.loader.Loader

Hyper-V loader.

Maps all virtual disks to the target. All paths are absolute in Hyper-V configuration files, so we first attempt to locate a file with the same name in the same path as the configuration file. This is the most common method if we get a copy of a Hyper-V VM. If that fails, we fall back to the absolute path, which is required when we’re targetting a Hyper-V host and loading child VMs.

static detect(path: pathlib.Path) bool#

Detects wether this Loader class can load this specific path.

Parameters:

path – The target path to check.

Returns:

True if the path can be loaded by a Loader instance. False otherwise.

map(target: dissect.target.target.Target) None#

Maps the loaded path into a Target.

Parameters:

target – The target that we’re mapping into.
