RVTools can pull a lot of info and export to excel; the ip address and vlan are listed there

However, subnet, gateway and dns servers will have to come from the OS as vcenter doesn't keep that

If you do not want to use a third party tool, vCenter can be used to export the information (IP Address, DNS name), if you look at the Virutal Machine view, and select the Columns you want to display, Right Click, and you have an Export option.

you can install on your local workstation and connect remotely; doesn't need to be on the vcenter server

Andrew 150 servers are there so are you sure the information can be pulled out easily and correctly if i go to the vcenter and find somewhere the virtual machine view (do not know where) and then select the columns of VLAN
IP ADDRESS
SUBNET
GATEWAY
DNS SERVERS

Then i right click and export and will get all details of 150 servers in a go.

there is no VLAN column in vCenter.

only IP Address and DNS name.

You would have to script the info, for Subnet, DNS Servers and Gateway

Select Host > Virtual Machines Tab
