Get Bios Firmware version Details

Dear Experts,

I got esxi 6.0 .. around 150 hosts

Need to find their H/w information :- Like their Bios and firmware details. Also the CPU family information.

Is there any script to connect to vcenter and find the above details of all hosts --- they have same esxi password.

Thanks

Getting BIOS information depends on the HW you are using.

Not all HW vendors play nice with the CIM interface, and thus vSphere can't fetch that all the info it wants.

This gives some info (in most cases)

Get-VMHost | Select Name,

    @{N="Bios Version";E={$_.ExtensionData.Hardware.BiosInfo.BiosVersion}},   

    @{N="Bios Release Date";E={$_.ExtensionData.Hardware.BiosInfo.ReleaseDate}}

What information do you actually want to retrieve?
Is that info available in the Web Client, or through an ESXi command?
