    Is there any method for export the ESXi / vSphere network configure? (Not use Distributed Switches)

    I need detail of the network configure such as vSwitch, Port group, VMKernel NICs, Services...
    As I need replace around 20 servers to around 10 servers.

    Any Bros can help me?

    Standalone hosts, or managed by vCenter Server?

    If managed by vCenter Server, have you considered using Host Profiles?

    Thanks for your reply, scott28tt.

    It managed by vCenter Server.

    May I know whether vSphere ® Enterprise Plus Licenses?

    "rvtools" might be able to get what you need in a pinch. (https://www.robware.net/rvtools/download/)

    Ultimately the best thing is a script. VMWare has powershell modules you can pull down off of Git hub. If you search in VMWare communities you will find scripts that people have already created and shared out. I know not everyone is scripting savvy, but its your greatest tool when pulling data from vCenters, ESXi host, etc.

    Thank you for your suggestion, but I can't find the script for export the data from VMWare communities.
