HP ProLiant Gen9 QR codes give you important information right to your fingertips.

Xani

Have you noticed the Quick Reference labels that come on each HP ProLiant Gen9 server? These labels (found either on the top right corner of the server or on the pull out tab) feature a QR code created for that specific server. When the QR code is scanned with a smartphone or other mobile device, you get a direct link to valuable information about your server.

 

In this new Coffee Coaching session, Mona Cheatham, HP Program Manager, provides a demonstration of the new mobile web experience users have access to after scanning a Gen9 QR code.

 

 

 

 

Wondering what kind of information you can get from scanning these helpful QR codes? By scanning the QR code found on your Gen9 server, you will get access to many task-based topics such as:

  • Getting started
  • Setup and installation
  • Configuration
  • Spare parts
  • Maintenance and service
  • Error messages
  • Troubleshooting
  • QuickSpecs
  • Information on the iLO mobile app
  • HP Extended Ambient Operating Support information

 

If you cannot bring your phone or mobile device into your Data Center there is no need to worry as HP conveniently provides the vanity URL for each QR code appearing on the servers. For example, the HP ProLiant DL360 Gen9 server’s Quick Reference label will display the vanity URL of “www.hp.com/qref/dl360gen9”. If you do not want to scan, or cannot scan, every server, HP has a solution for that as well with their HP Quick Reference home page: www.hp.com/qref/servers.

I've found these generic information to be less than useful. What would be useful are unique identifier information for the specific machine like serial/product #, and in particular all the MAC addresses for the onboard NICs and iLOs that we can then use for deployment. I am literally running into this issue as I type this.
