Script: Detailed NIC Information Report

sam.aaron/ August 22, 2011/ Daily, ESX, VMware/ 0 comments

Over the last few days, my coworker and I have been working on a script that will go out and collect detailed network information for each NIC on our ESX hosts. Not wanting to reinvent the wheel, I strolled over to Alan Reneuf’s website ( I had remembered seeing a script (“More Network Info”) he created that I knew could collect the info we wanted. Thank you, Alan.

I copied Alan’s script into Notepad++ and started to work with it. One of the things we needed to know was duplex information. Since that wasn’t in the original script, I added it. I didn’t need to know the number of active virtual switch ports, so I removed that portion.

Here are the end results of this modified script.
