Setting the correct serial and product number ?

Khikhuch had an asset tracking issue:

 

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

 

Hi Team !

 

I need to correct serial and product numbers on a large number of bl2x220 g6 servers.

Do we have some tools/scripts/ideas to do it quickly   ?

 

I did not find anything about serial number setting in SmartStart Scripting Toolkit guides.

 

PS: This is HPC cluster with RedHat 5.x and HP CMU.

This is for Asset Tag but the same would apply to serial number:  http://forums11.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1132242

I used conrep utility from SmartStart scripting toolkit to deploy BIOS settings on each server, but I can not find correct xml script or profile for changing serial number and I have no experience to write my own xml script.

The Red Hat utility tool Conrep can set those fields. I have the XML syntax tucked away somewhere. Let me find and send.

Any other help for Khikhuch?
