    Does anyone know how to print off a list of vms from vsphere (our usual admin is out today and there is a requirement for it)

    I'm sure there is a really simple export option but I just can't seem to find it... :oops:

    Many thanks in advance,

    Lee

    LOL - someone asked me the very same thing a few weeks back...

    Nugg - if you're wondering, highlight the cluster/host you want to export a list of VMs running on and select File - Export from
    the vSphere client menu bar

    Aaah Zeb, you could have at least tried to make it sound a little more difficult!

    Actually there was one thing you missed and that's that you have to make sure that you are also on the "virtual machines summary" tab in order to enable the "export list" option.

    Did that person who asked you feel suitably embarrassed also? :D

    Aha - you're right - I missed that bit out!

    To be fair, it would be more intuitive to be able to right click the host/cluster and have the export menu there - but I'm not a big fan of the changes to the vi client in vsphere anyway - they're no improvement over previous versions and, in some cases, are actively worse.

    The person who asked me originally was my manager... so if he was embarrassed about it I wasn't going to pull him on it :biggrin

    My thoughts exactly - it's weird that they didn't do that.

    Yes, best keep quiet with your boss! :)

    If Lee had asked how to do it in PowerCLI I would have told her how to do it in PowerCLI :biggrin

    Actually i got VERY lucky on the MS call, I got one of the guys who worked on the Direct Access project helping me out, everyone looked good but our traces were indicating certificate problems during the tunnel negotiation, we think we have a fix though :)
    and i learnt a TON more about Direct Access.. haha
