MAC number

This might be a general question.......
I just powerup an rp3440 server for the first time. (We use DHCP.) Reading the documentation I am go get the MAC number from the back of the server. I spent way too much time looking for a MAC number on the back, sides, top and bottom of the server and couldnt find it. I even looked at the system hardware sheet that came with the server and didnt see a MAC number listed there. There is a LAN hardware ID but it is 14 char long and the setup doc. says that it is only 12 char long.

THanks for the help

Re: MAC number

This may be of little help to you,
but from the OS you would usually issue either the command
lanscan
or
lanadmin -a n
where "n" is the so called physical point of attachment (i.e. 3 for lan3, 6 for lan6 etc.).
Since I'm replying from home where I haven't got an HP server at my disposal I cannot even tell if these commands are available in /sbin so that you could boot to maintenance mode and issue them.
There may also be HW inventory scan commands in the PDC, but I don't know them by heart.

Re: MAC number

Well a MAC address is 14 characters if you include the leading 0x to indicate it is in hex.
Does the LAN hardware ID have a leading 0x?
If so, strip that off an dyou have a 12 character hexadecimal MAC address

Re: MAC number

Hello Goldsmith,

go to command menu of MP.
MP:CM> LC -nc
this will display ur mac address like this.
MP:CM> LC -nc
Current LAN Configuration:
MAC Address : 0x0060b0f54c51
DHCP Status : Enabled
IP Address : 127.1.1.1
MP Host Name : maestro
Subnet Mask : 255.255.248.0
Gateway Address : 127.1.1.1
Link State : Auto Negotiate
u can see the MAC Address here,
where 0x is for hex it means ur mac address is 0060b0f54c51.
issue help command there for any help about MP>

Cheers,
Awadhesh
It's kind of fun to do the impossible

Re: MAC number

Jeffrey,

There is a label to pull out right next to the internal diskbay. Here you find the mac adress of the MP

Re: MAC number

Thanks Luk, I was able to find the MAC on that tab. There was a MAC on the inventory sheet but it was different than the one on the server. Now that I have the MAC I was able to connect to the iLO and get it configured so I could get to my server.

Thanks for the help.
