Generating an Overview Report

The Invoke-VcfOverviewReport cmdlet generates a system overview report. This report contains high-level information about the VMware Cloud Foundation system. This report may be used to provide a quick system overview of the system to your VMware representative.

Generate an Overview Report for a VMware Cloud Foundation Instance

  1. Start PowerShell (Run as Administrator).

  2. Replace the values in the sample code with values for the instance of VMware Cloud Foundation to generate a system overview report for SDDC Manager instance and run the commands in the PowerShell console.


    $sddcManagerFqdn = ""
    $sddcManagerUser = "admin@local"
    $sddcManagerPass = "VMw@re1!VMw@re1!"
    $reportPath = "F:\Reporting"
    $sddcManagerFqdn = ""
    $sddcManagerUser = "admin@local"
    $sddcManagerPass = "VMw@re1!VMw@re1!"
    $reportPath = "/home/vmware/reporting"
  3. Generate the report by running the command in the PowerShell console.

    Invoke-VcfOverviewReport -sddcManagerFqdn $sddcManagerFqdn -sddcManagerUser $sddcManagerUser -sddcManagerPass $sddcManagerPass -reportPath $reportPath

    If you prefer to anonymize the data, you can use the -anonymized parameter.

    Invoke-VcfOverviewReport -sddcManagerFqdn $sddcManagerFqdn -sddcManagerUser $sddcManagerUser -sddcManagerPass $sddcManagerPass -reportPath $reportPath -anonymized
  4. Review the generated HTML report.
