We are working to get a large (inherited) VMware ESX 3.5 environment with multiple SANs under control. We first need to create a diagram / Excel spreadsheet / whatever that explains what VM is stored where. This is a rather time-consuming task to complete by just using the VI client to copy down everything. Is there a good script or tool out there that can do this for us?

I would like to see: VM Name, LUN, Actual file-name/location of VMDK/VMX, Power State, Host

Any ideas?


I use a simple utility rvtools for this
