VMWARE hardware status tab missing

vmware esx server 3i 3.5.0 153875 hardware status tab missing
I've inherited a client with a VMware Server
they are having disk performance issues on one of their VM and would like to see the underling Harware RAID configurations without rebooting the server.
I'm signed in as user root from the VMware Infrastructure Client.
Isn't there usually a Hardware Status tab? I don't see it here. Is there a way to get this tab to show or installed?

if you are logged in directly to the host (not going through vCenter Server) there's a hardware status under the Configuration tab.

It's called Hardware Status, and it's present on ESX 3.x and 4.x (not i), unless you have the OEM CIM providers installed for your server.

This is the correct place to check, if it's missing which is likely with ESXi, it's because you do not have the CIM providers installed for your server.
