Capture VM Configuration Details

Is there a quick way to capture VM configuration details for several servers in our various ESX hosts. I want to document things like which VMDK's are associated with the VM's and the other settings such as what networks are connected, how much RAM, how many CPU's etc. I was thinking if there's an ASCII config file per guest that I could copy them off the ESX servers and use them to get the required information. Thanks.

PJ.

Hi, the vm's .vmx file has got all that info - just go onto the esx box and goto /vmfs/volumes/[Data_Store]/[VM_Name]/

Prices can vary depending on how many licenses you wish to obtain. I do know Veeam Licenses Reporter by physical CPU, not core.
