I have three vcenter servers, in every environment there are 30-40 hosts. My boss asked me to make a spreedsheet of all hardware spec of all hosts. How can I do it fast?

I can see the spec from the summary tab, but I can't copy paste or export it out. I want to get a fast way. since I have access to the backend database, I think I can do it through the database.

Thank you.

If you want to do it FAST.... download and use RV Tools from

http://www.robware.net/

This is a standalone application which uses your username and password to connect to vCenter Server, and quickly collects all the data, and you can export to Excel, in seconds for a quick report!

This is the vHosts tab, which I think this is the output you require for your boss!

vHosts by RV Tools!
