Query Blade or Blade Server Chassis

Hi All
We have many Blade Chassis in our datacenter and i was wondering if there was a way to query a blade to find out what chassis it is in or if there is a way to query the chassis to display all the blades that are in it. I would like to get the information to populate a web page that would allow us to go directly to the blade for remote management.

Sooo many ways to achieve this.

One out of this is to let the OA generate a configuration script. This will tell you almost "everything" about the system.

For example:

NIC 2 MAC Address: 00:1A:4B:xxx
NIC 3 MAC Address: 00:1A:4B:xxx
NIC 4 MAC Address: 00:1A:4B:xxx

Management Processor Information:

Hope this helps!

ILO2 shows the blade location in enclosure/rack information too.

If You are familiar with the ILO command line

Re: Query Blade or Blade Server Chassis

If you don't feel like parsing out the OA configuration output, consider that the Report Designer in SIM can provide very customized reports on enclosure capacity and configuration. I believe this is the preferred method.
