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.

Function Get-ESXiMemoryDimms {
        Returns memory dimms configuration for esxi
        This function utilizes wsman / cim in order to download configuration of memory dims in ESXi.
    .PARAMETER  esxi
        Specify esxi host for which you want to get the report
    .PARAMETER  rootpw
        Password for user root inside esxi
        PS C:\> Get-ESXiMemoryDimms -Esxi 'Esxi048.domain.local' -rootpw 'password.123' | ft *
