Retrieving Info using vCenter Plugin/ExtensionManager

Is there a way to retrieve the info (highlighted in yellow) in the vCenter UI, using its extension key in PowerCLI? I'm not able to find where these properties are stored.

Afaik there is no general API for that, but specific HW vendors provide their won API.

For Dell see for example Dell EMC VxRail Appliance

But I'm not sure if those REST API actually return the information on that screenshot (since I don't have the HW)

Thanks LucD As you said, it doesn't look like those REST API can retrieve those info. There seems to be a way to collect a lot more info than the ones in the screenshot, using iDRAC API​.

Yes, I suppose it is up to the HW vendor to provide that info one way or another.

But afaik there is no uniform way (i.e. HW independent) to retrieve it
