Powercli One-Liner to List ESXi Host UUID

by admin

I had to list the host UUID of all the ESXi hosts in an environment recently. This is just a quick post, to show how to grab this information using PowerCLI.

After pointing the PowerCLI session at the relevent vCenter (or ESXi host), run the following:

Get-VMHost | Select Name,@{n="HostUUID";e={$_.ExtensionData.hardware.systeminfo.uuid}}

This results in listing each host, along with its UUID:


Nice and easy!
