How do i find hardware details of the memory in the ESx server

Jump to solution

Hello All,

I would like to find the hardware details of the kingston memory on the ESx host.

Things like speed in Mhz make model etc.

lspci does not seem to help.

If anyone knows of a method of doing this please help.

Regards

Faustina

Run 'vm-support' in the default /root directory of the ESX server, and then uncompress the resulting vm-support diagnostics file (tar xfz name.tgz). If you go into the /tmp directory underneath the directory that's created, you'll find a file starting with

dmidecode

. If you view this file, it gives pretty good details about your server hardware.

Depending on the hardware you should try the management agents (HP SIM for example).

AFAIR - no (and I'm not sure if the agents give this info at all - I don't use them too).

I guess the best option is to shut down the server and open it.

Go to the HP website, type in your product name, select download drivers, click on VMware as your operating system, then download the management agents for ESX. Once downloaded, copy them to your server, un-tar them (tar -zxvf hpmgmt-7.7.0-vmware3x.tgz) and there is a readme in there that tells how to install them. You basically switch to the directory it creates and type "./installvm770.sh". Once installed you can use a browser and go to https://:2381 and login as root and view the hardware configuration.

Since I don't have the agents installed (due to some issues in the past) I unfortunately can't help you with that.
