VMWare Scripts

Posted on 2012-08-17

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.

    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

    the above is always up to date and current.


    VMware vSphere Health Check Report v5.0.2

    is also current.
