VMWare Scripts

Looking for a link for VMWare scripts for reporting; no migration, consolidation, etc. just running deep extensive reports.

I've found a few sites but all the scripts seem to be from about from 2008. I'm assuming there have been some changes in the architecture that might render some of these scripts moot.

I would recommend using the following, also VMware recommends the use of PowerCLI, which is PowerShell interface with vSphere-specific additions.

http://communities.vmware.com/community/vmtn/server/vsphere/automationtools/powercli

One of the simplest PowerCLI examples, and something which is actually extremely useful on its own, is the Get-VM cmdlet. Which lists VMs.

PowerCLI can be a bit overwhelming to use,  But it can be enhanced with a nice toolset and a library of preconfigured scripts to jump-start your mass changes, which is possible with PowerGUI

http://powergui.org/index.jspa

and

VMware Community Pack

http://www.virtu-al.net/featured-scripts/vmware-powerpack/

the above is always up to date and current.

otherwise

VMware vSphere Health Check Report v5.0.2
http://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-9842

is also current.
