Hardware audit of ESX servers

I need to full audit of our esx servers which run on dell poweredge r815 servers.  Its part of our asset management.  I thought to do this, i could use powershell to get some hardware information of the esx servers.  The information I need is :

Serial Number/Asset Tag

Cpu brand

Cpu cache size

Ram quantity and type allocation (eg.  8 * 1GB)

Pagefile/Swap size

Motherboard BIOS Version

Mac Address of Vmnic

Storage Controller brand/Model

Local storage RAID

Local Storage partitions

Can powershell help to get some or all of the information above

Thanks

Part of the HW info you're looking for can be obtained through the CIM interface.

Have a look at Robert's script in Script to get serial number of all hosts to start with.

lucd,

Is it possible to get all the information I have listed via powershell, using cmdlets for hosts and networking.

Do you know of any.

We will be doing this regularly know on our hosts

I too need such a script. My esx host's are mainly Dell or IBM but i cannot seem to be able to get the asset tag or bios version for Dell.

If you could crack this then that would be great.
