I had to get some info about host memory dimms layout, so i wrote this one.
It is utilizing CIM_PhysicalMemory. Not sure if i haven’t written it before, but i couldn’t find it on my disk so…
Here it is.

[sourcecode language=”powershell”]
Function Get-ESXiMemoryDimms {
Returns memory dimms configuration for esxi

This function utilizes wsman / cim in order to download configuration of memory dims in ESXi.

Specify esxi host for which you want to get the report

Password for user root inside esxi

PS C:\> Get-ESXiMemoryDimms -Esxi ‘Esxi048.domain.local’ -rootpw ‘password.123’ | ft *
