If any of you are familiar with the following script:

https://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-11901

A few questions if I may:

1) Can it only be run against hosts running v5.1 of vsphere? Or will it also audit older version of vsphere?

2) Can you run it remotely? I.e. from a workstation in the same domain as the vcenter? I was a bit confused when it said "download the script and upload it to upload to your vMA 4.x/5.x host" - indicating perhaps you need to upload it to every host you want to audit?

3) Any idea how long it takes to run and does it have any performance impact on the systems being scanned?

4) If you can run it just against vcenter as opposed each host, where exactly do you enter you vcenter and admin credentials within the scipt?
