      Thank you for your script(s), they are very usefull and have taught me a lot about documenting environments with MS Word. I do however see a (small) issue with this script, as the vCenter summary shows a nice legend, but only the 0-69% color seems to be working in the “Host Summary” and “Datastore Summary”. I wouldn’t mind diving into the script and trying to fix it, but since it’s your shared script, you might want to do so yourself or have Jacob change it. If you wouldn’t mind me to dive into this, let me know.

      The vmware documentation script works great except for one issue I have found. I am running one vcenter instance with 3 clusters. The script only records the DRS Rules and Groups from one of the clusters. The scripts finds the first cluster with DRS rules and Gruups – records them – and skips the rules and groups for the other clusters.

        I forwarded your issue to Jacob and now that he is back in the country, he hopes to have a fix released soon.
