Pull out serial number from Proliant server

Edvard was looking for some help:

 

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

 

Hi,

 

Is there any other way to determine the serial number of a ProLiant without taking it from HP SIM or look at the server physically. Is it mentioned in the registry or can I use some kind of look up tool etc.

Windows:  wmic  bios get serialnumber

Linux:  dmidecode -s system-serial-number

 

These read standardized values out of SMBIOS.

 

Also could be viewed by logging in to iLO.

Any other suggestions for Edvard?
