  1. Hi,
    Am i missing is it or not, but the reports are not showing individual vsphere servers. I mean the ones that are not clustered. Only cluster nodes are shown.. Will you please confirm this?
    Thanks,
    Engin

  2. Hi,
    When you use type “Datacenter” as parameter, it’s not showing the standalone vsphere servers. Also, when you use “vcenter” as type, in the Hosts and Virtual Machines tab, it writes them as Cluster:Hostname.
    Thanks.

  4. Hello will,
    I am using the script with vsphere 5.5 support and since i added a new cluster on the 5.5 datacenter,
    the cluster tab in the report is empty.
    Is there a debug option to investigate ?
    Thanks

Thanks for the comment!
