unable to get the server serial number & service tag using Get-VMHost

I run the following command on some hyper-visor servers :-

Get-VMHost

where i got info such as name, cpu, RAM,model etc ... but i can not find the following info:-

- the server serial number.

- the server service tag.

so can anyone advice how i can get these 2 info for hypervisor servers ?

Thanks.

It takes a bit of work but its in ExtensionData.Hardware.Systeminfo.OtherIdentifyingInfo of the host object (i.e. what you get back from Get-VMHost). OtherIdentifyingInfo is a collection of value/type pairs.

get-vmhost yourhostname).ExtensionData.Hardware.SystemInfo.OtherIdentifyingInfo | Where-object {$_.IdentifierType.Key -eq "AssetTag" }

(get-vmhost yourhostname).ExtensionData.Hardware.SystemInfo.OtherIdentifyingInfo | Where-object {$_.IdentifierType.Key -eq "ServiceTag" } 

if the service tag isn't the same as the serial number then try

(get-esxcli -VMHost yourhost).hardware.platform.get().SerialNumber

now inside the get-vmhost yourhostname).ExtensionData.Hardware.SystemInfo.OtherIdentifyingInfo

i got three items:-


1. Asset Tag which is = null

2. Service tag = valid number such as CJZ.....

3. OemSpecificString = Product ID = 123...


so now for the service tag it is there,, but not sure if the OemSpecifcString contain the serial , which is the number after the "Product ID ="? or it is different thing ?

Thanks
