Based on the PowerCLI: Virtual Machine Disk (VMDK) info v2: Analyze data with Excel script by Arne Fokkema, this script will save your virtual machine info in an XML file.

  • List of VMs with
 * port groups with VLAN info
 * Datastore
 * Capacity in GB
 * CPU count
 * Memory size
 * Nic count
 * Disk count
 * full guest name
