Mentioning this in case you have not heard of it yet.

I LOVE this Free Tool!

I am currently working on a PowerShell script to automate it via a scheduled task.

RVTOOLS

Interacting with VirtualCenter 2.5, ESX Server 3.5, ESX Server 3i, VirtualCenter 4.x, ESX Server 4.x, VirtualCenter 5.0, VirtualCenter Appliance, ESX Server 5.0, VirtualCenter 5.1, ESX Server 5.1, VirtualCenter 5.5, ESX Server 5.5.

I'm working on it now...  [smile]

Some of ours are pretty big so email is going to be an issue.  Actually what I'm looking at doing it creating the xls report for each vSphere then FTP it to our repository then will have those that want it, get it from there.
