I am in the process of starting the upgrade process of my company's VSphere 4.1 env to VSphere 5.0. I have over a 1,000 plus guest machines running in my environment.
Before the upgrade I need some information about my guest OS such as version of the VMWare tools that are running on the guest OSs, virtual machine version and etc. I wanted to know if anyone could point me toward some scripts which can gather this information about my env for me?
Thanks in advance for everyone's help.

once connected to your vcenter you could run something like this. This targets a particular datacenter and will export out to csv for you.
Get-Datacenter Datacenter name | Get-VM | Select Name, Version, ToolsVersion, ToolsVersionStatus | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -UseCulture -Path C:\Temp\MyvmtoolsInfo.csv
