Hi,

I'm trying to find a PowerCLI script that I can run on my vCenter environment to get a list of all the VM's and when it was last logged into and by whom if possible.

I'm not that good at scripting so if someone could provide the code and explain what I would have to input to get this done that would be great.


Thanks

In the last script link I provided you at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/VMWare/Q_28337757.html , take of one of the event and replace it with

VmConnectedEvent

That will get you the last logon information of all VM's

Was just looking at the events. You can only pull the details of the last powered on. I do not see any last logon event.

Hi,

If we are sure that it's not able to find those results, then lets see if we are able to do "last powered on" instead which should be sufficient for the reporting I'm doing.

Please let me know.

Thanks

Its very easy that way.
Download this tool called RVtools

Run it against your vCenter. It will generate an extensive report of all the possible things you need. Including Power on event which can be found under vInfo called as PowerOn.

Let me know if that is enough. Also you can export the report into EXcel,CSV  etc.
