Restoring Serial Number to midplane C-7000??

Claudia had a tricky question about setting a new mid-plane serial number so HP SIM is happy:

 

*********************************************************************************************************

Customer had a midplane replace replaced and now HP SIM is carping that there is no SN – how do you fix this?

Now if I look at a C3000 MDR – the SN of the midplane is N/A – but does show a part number.

Hoa had a quick response:
