Trying to pull hardware info from host running Esxi 6.0

I am trying to determine the RAM type and model in a host running Esxi 6.0 with only the vsphere client, no vcenter. Is this possible?

Does your server have some kind of IPMI interface that you can get to? I don't believe you can get that information from ESXi, but you can probably get it from IPMI (ilo, iDRAC).

It's a Lenovo RD640 so it should, just not sure if it's setup, it it's not then it has to be configured in the BIOS which of course requires a reboot. Thanks I will look into that.
