via PowerCLI you can export the license information see here

http://www.virtu-al.net/2009/10/30/powercli-vsphere-license-export/

The above script is included with the VMware Community Pack.

via PowerCLI you can dispaly the license information see this Article which shows you with the scripts you require

http://blogs.vmware.com/vipowershell/2012/05/retrieving-license-keys-from-multiple-vcenters.html

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
