Hi Experts,

I'm looking for something that will give me the details of my ESX clusters, I'm looking for the configuration of the cluster(s) i.e. Hosts, make, model, disks, datastores, vmfs./iscsi, nfs, ESXi version, build, basically everything to do with the environment Exept the guest VM's. I don't want to know what vms are on the hosts, just the detailed information of the cluster. Is there anything out there like that?

have you looked at the information RV Tools can provide from http://www.robware.net/

otherwise, it would be scripts..

I would recommend using the following, also VMware recommends the use of PowerCLI, which is PowerShell interface with vSphere-specific additions.

http://communities.vmware.com/community/vmtn/server/vsphere/automationtools/powercli

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
