SSH into the host and then run this command: vmware-cmd -l

You can then copy/paste the list into Excel

There are a number of methods to do this....

You can use the Excellent RV Tools from this link

http://www.robware.net/

This is a standlone application, login with username and password, connect to server, and it will display, many different columns, save the Output as Excel.

OR....using the vSphere Client

Select the virtual machines Tab,  Right Click the Left/Right Scroll Bar, and Click Export List, and then save as Web HTML or Excel Workbook, or CSV

Thanx Andrew. Any idea how this works in the web console? It doesn't have a virtual machine 'tab'. Cheers

If you double click on the "Virtual Machines", a table of VMsd, should appear.

Select the VMs, you want the info on, click at the Bottom Right the Export List icon.

Select rows you want to export, and click Generate Report,  and save

I prefer the vSphere Client (C#), but it will be gone soon!
