    via PowerCLI you can export the license information see here

    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

    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
