You can scan VMware hosts using IP Range Scanning. Your IP Range Scanning settings can be found in the configuration console under Scanning Servers\Your Server\IP Range Scanning. Open the credentials box for your IP range to submit SSH credentials for the host.

To report on which virtual machines are on which host, we recommend the following:
- Submit the host name in one of the custom fields for the virtual machines. For example, use the Custom10 field. You can rename this field in the configuration console under Configuration\Custom Fields.
- Create a report based on the Custom10 field. An example report can be seen below.

Select tblComputers.Computername, tblComputers.ComputerUnique,
tblComputers.Domain, tblComputers.Firstseen, tblComputers.Lastseen,
tblCompCustom.Custom10
From tblComputers Inner Join
tblCompCustom On tblComputers.Computername = tblCompCustom.Computername
Order By tblCompCustom.Custom10, tblComputers.ComputerUnique
