How do I find the serial number of the CPUs on an rx4640?

Hello--

On an rpXX00 server we can run cstm to give us all sorts of fun information about the hardware. That includes the serial number of the CPUs.

I am trying to find the CPU serial numbers of some rx4640s but cstm does not report them. The cstm report refers to machinfo for CPU information. Of course machinfo does not give the S/Ns. :-(

A little googling showed me that I could find the CPU serial number with System Fault Management, which is part of SIM/SMH. Well, I tried that but don't see the CPU S/N.

Any clues on how I can find these serial numbers?

If you're running hpux, do
getconf MACHINE_SERIAL
<>
getconf CS_MACHINE_SERIAL
Ask and you shall receive

That getconf command yields the system serial number. I want the serial numbers of the CPUs.

System Fault Management (SysFaultMgmt)will give show the CPU serial numbers through CPU Instance Provider.

Is CPU Instance Provider another tool that must be installed or is that in SIM?

The CPU Instance Provider is a Web-Based Enterprise Management (WBEM) based tool and a part of SFM. Thus SFM needs to be installed. Check the Prerequisites of SFM for HP-UX 11i v2 Systems.

Sorry forgot to add about SIM.

Once SFM is installed on the servers, you can retrieve the information provided by the SFM providers through SIM 5.x Inventory.

Hi Rudy,

If your System is installed with SysFaultMgmt (SFM), you can get the processor serial number by making the below call.

you should be a root user

/opt/sfm/bin/CIMUtil -e root/cimv2 HP_ProcessorChip | grep -i serialnumber


Thanks
