Do you have any error messages? What is failing exactly?

Try this free tool

also there is another script...

see here

VMware vSphere Health Check Report v5.1.0

The issue with many of these community scripts, they are home grown, and community supported, and often break.

You may have better luck with the scripts in

VMware Community Pack

A health check report also exists in the above pack.

You have made sure that you have connected to vCenter Server, using the VMware PowerGUI Pack.

We've use it.

You would have to find an older version of VMware Community Pack.

This is the issue with Community Generated FREE scripts, you could try and contact the author of the script.

A follow-up, just checked a recent installation, and vCheck has now been removed from the Community Plugin.

No idea why, I would contact the Author.
