    Here is a link to post about an HTML reporting module. It’s a series of functions that help generate HTML code easily from within your powershell scripts. I am actually working on some additional functions as well, so stay tuned.

    What if I have a “variable” with multiple values. Basically I did what you did, and it only displays one of the values.
    If I do a write-host $virtualsws, it displays all three virtual switches.

    If I do the following:
    foreach ($virtswitch in (get-vmhost | Get-Virtualswitch | select name, mtu))
    {$virtswitch = $virtswitch -replace ‘[@{}]’}

    $props05 = @{
    ‘Virtual Switches’=$virtswitch
    ‘vSwitch0 MTU’=$vSwitch0Mtu

    It displays only one of the switches.
    Would appreciate if you can guide me on the right direction. I have multiple values with the same problem. Trying to build a report for ESXi hosts

    Thanks for the help
