      All, new at all the scripting things and I am missing a basic step I hope you can clue me in on. I am using VmWare Powercli, but I am 99% sure this is basic Powershell that applies to all users.

      So this line :

      get-cluster "Cluster" | Get-VM | select-object name, vmhost, folder

      Returns me a nice little output of the data I want, like this

      Name VMHost Folder
      —- —— ——
      P-SPAPP02 esx0315-mgmt Sharepoint
      p-netops02 esx0315-mgmt NetOps
      P-LyncSQL01 esx0315-mgmt Lync

      And this returns some nice, pretty information as well.

      get-cluster "Cluster" | Get-VM | get-networkadapter | select-object networkname

      Corporate Network
      VM Production
      MSCS Private Network

      What is the easy, simple way to combine the two commandlets to that my final output is this:

      Name VMHost Folder NetworkName
      —- —— —— ———–
      P-SPAPP02 esx0315-mgmt Sharepoint Corporate Network
      p-netops02 esx0315-mgmt NetOps VM Production
      P-LyncSQL01 esx0315-mgmt Lync MSCS Private Network

      Thanks for your help….

      This is written without being able to test it, so there might of course be a spelling error or two, but I believe something along the lines of the following should work:

      Get-Cluster "Cluster" | Get-VM | Select Name, VMHost, Folder, @{ Name= 'NetworkName', Expression = { $_ | Get-NetworkAdapter | Select -Expand NetworkName }}
