We have multiple vCenters that are shared between customers, each customer is on a cluster. What I want to do, is to audit only a specific cluster and to gather this information. I'm not interested on having the vCenter, I'm interested only on the relation between VM - Vm host - cluster.
Do you have some idea on how to achieve this?
Thank you for your support and I wish you a nice day.

I agree with Markward here.
Presumably, you're suggesting we limit the permissions of the account we're using to inventory that VCenter on the VCenter itself, so each individual account can only see the VMs/Hosts/Clusters associated with that customer?
Sounds reasonable to me, although it's not something I've tested personally.

One approach to consider here may be to set up the inventory rule to target the individual ESX servers of interest in the cluster rather than targeting the VCenter.

This could be a solution, but what's happening if on the same ESX are multiple cluster, and I want to audit only one cluster, and also what happening in case of commissioning new ESX servers, then I need to put in place some sort of procedure.
