The "uname -i" command will give the machine id and, generally, you can get the serial number with cstm or possibly some other commands. See the following threads:

Get the system serial number for L2000 (rp5450), rp3440, rp4440 and N4000 (rp7400) system from cstm (info tool on system item).

The K-class and IMHO the J-class too doesn't know about the serial - read it from the chassis label.

Hope this helps!

Senthil,
Use this command as a root , on all the server and you will get the Serial and machine id:

#### Serial_Number#####
# ( echo "selclass qualifier system;info;wait;infolog" | /usr/sbin/cstm ) | grep -i "System serial"


##### System ID ######
# uname -i


-----
For old systems: K and J class For Serial_number try:
# /usr/bin/getsn or /usr/sbin/getsn

if the getsn utility is not there, look at the server chasis and you will find the serial number :
----


Cheers,
Raj.

Hi Senthil,

# man getconf
or
http://docs.hp.com/en/B3921-60631/getconf.1.html

# getconf MACHINE_SERIAL
# getconf CS_MACHINE_SERIAL

You can find lot more information from getconf command.
