What sort of information are you looking for?  You should be able to use PowerCLI to pull host information from vCenter. 

the Get-VMHost cmdlet contains a lot of information.

An ESXi host with a free Hypervisor license cannot be managed by vCenter. However, you can use scripts (e.g. PowerCLI), or tools like RVTools‌ to retrieve information.

Hi,

You can retrieve this information by browsing to https://youresxhost/cgi-bin/esxcfg-info.cgi.


The output looks like this:

Free in terms of free blade in the folder, we will keep some additional ESXi boxes in the folder for feature user or unexpected user can we pull that info.

Free Esxi means, currently no VM's were running from blade.

Hi,

You can run the below command which will give you the count of VM's per host in a cluster.

Get-VMHost | Select @{N=“Cluster“;E={Get-Cluster -VMHost $_}}, Name, @{N=“NumVM“;E={($_ | Get-VM).Count}} | Sort Cluster, Name | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation c:\clu-host-numvm.csv

Thanks n Regards
