9000/800/L3000-7x

On the model in subject I can't retrive the serial number by the print_manifest command.

Somebody knows why and if there is another command to know the machine serial number?

Thank you.
Best regards.

Hi Francesco,

# echo "sel dev 1 ;info;wait;infolog" | cstm |grep -i "System Serial Number"

This came up lot of times.
If you have ignite installed, print_manifest will give you serial no.

If you have STM(Support Tool Manager) installed, you can get it as follows.

echo "selclass qualifier cpu;info;wait;infolo"|cstm

hi,

do you perform make_tape_recovery?

if so, maybe you can look at /var/opt/ignite/recovery/latest/manifest.

The Grossens and RAC command suggested gave me back: cstm not found;

on this machine anybody never made a make recovery for the /var/opt/ignite/recovery command. Infact the latest directory doesn't exist.

Thank you.
Regards.

It sounds like you don't have Diagnostics installed. If that is the case CSTM won't work. That may also be why print_manifest isn't working. If you can I would definitely install diagnostics. Note that the install will probably require a reboot.

Patrick,

the print_manifest works but doesn't give back the serial number of the machine like, for example, do the N class server. I don't understand why.

Thank you.

Hi Francesco,

Sorry I misunderstood your question, If you have ignite installed this should work. Could you check your Ignite version. The latest is B.5.3.x

Patrick is correct about Diagnostic and Support Tools, this should be installed.

@RAC "only for correction"

the command you have written give you the serial number of the cpu's NOT the system serial number.


correct is:

echo "selclass qualifier system;info;wait;infolog"|cstm |grep -i "system serial number"

hi,

you must run make_tape_recovery in order to generate the latest softlink to view the serial number of the server from the file, manifest.

did you also try:

# /opt/ignite/bin/print_manifest > server_system_info
# cat server_system_info

the serial number is seen after:
