Some of it would be in a smolt report (try "smoltSendProfile -p" to
see what it spits out.

dmidecode will show you what's in the box (memory, cpu, etc.).

lspci can give you more details about the individual cards in the

lsusb will do the same for USB ports.

"cat /proc/scsi/scsi" can show you what drives are attached, but
remember that if you're using hardware RAID, it can't tell you how
many drives make up the RAID or what RAID level it is as the system
just sees the RAID, not its components.  A lot of RAID cards do have a
way of querying them to get those details.

In other words, no, there's no simple way.
