Collecting hardware diagnostic logs for ESXI 5.0 hosts on HP servers

** Fornote: I do not beleive this works on ESXI 5.5/6.0+. Instead take a look at: HP Agentless Management Service Offline Bundle http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=MTX_b05d4c644fb742aa87cb5f5da1#tab1 **

HP have provided a utility that allows you to remotely collect hardware diagnostic logs from an ESXI host.

We should firstly download the utility as below:

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=5351&prodSeriesId=1121516&swItem=MTX-b677f47e08794b8cba62d12c3f&prodNameId=3288134&swEnvOID=4115&swLang=8&taskId=135&mode=4&idx=2

We should then launch the HP Remote System Managment CLI and export the relevent logs:
