Hi,

I will send a "snail mail" with a cookie to the first person that explains for me the procedure of how to lookup within RHEL or ESX the cmd that's shows me the DIMM slots in the ESX server, what size of memory in which slot and how many DIMM's that are free etc etc (any information is better than no information).

Is it possible whitout a management agent? And I hope ESX4.0 (vCenter) will have a health status page with this information included/list of DIMMS size of memory.

hi,

I don't think the Vmreference card contains this information. (I have an older printed version on my office wall) Smiley Happy
