You can export the contents of an inventory list view to a CSV file.


  1. In the vSphere Client, click Menu and select Global Inventory Lists.
  2. In the left pane, select one of the object or resource categories to view objects of that type.
    For example, click Hosts to view the hosts in the vSphere inventory.
  3. Select whether you want all rows or your current selection of rows to be listed in the CSV file.
  4. Click the EXPORT option at the bottom left corner of a list view.
    By default, if you do not select objects from the list, the detailed information about all listed objects is exported.


The CSV file is generated and available for download.
