I heard from Ariel Sanchez that he needed something tested. It was vDocumentation and him and Edgar Sanchez had something very cool. I want to share it with you as I think it very handy. It produces very nice reports on your vSphere environment. Lets see how to get it working and produce some reports.
The home of this project is in this GitHub location. But all the info you need is right here in this article.
- Have PowerCLI installed – preferably 6.5.2, and be in PowerCLI and execute these commands:
Install-Module ImportExcel -scope CurrentUser
Install-Module vDocumentation -scope CurrentUser
- If you have errors when executing those commands you can add -force at the end of the line.
- If you have installed this cool stuff a few weeks ago you should do:
Now connect to your vCenter and execute the following commands:
Note that there will be some red errors on the Get-ESXStorage but I can tell you they know and are working on it.
Once the four reports are done, and you look in the location where they are written too – by default c:\windows\system32.
Below is screenshots of each report. But only the first part, with each one you could scroll down and right in Excel. They are very detailed reports.
There you have it. With very little work, and very little config, you end up with four very detailed Excel spreadsheets on your vSphere environment. Very handy stuff and I sure like how easy it is to install and update!
