Exporting list of virtual machines does not list all virtual machines

I was at a customer site the other day and we needed a list of all VMs from their datacenter. The quickest way is usually to log in via the C# client and go to virtual machine view. We did the initial export and had a look at the CSV file which only listed the first 100 VMs details when the customer had over 300 in their environment. After a quick search on VMware KB article reveals that it is a bug within vsphere client and only effects vCenter 4.x - 5.1. The work around is to ensure that you scroll down and view all the VMs so that it is cache onto the client then do the export. Here is the link to the KB article for your reference:
