Serial Number Problem


HI,

I have a BL60p Server which had a problem with basse assembly and has been replaced and the server is working fine.

Except for the hard disk, RAM Module and Processor, the entire server has been changed.

The server is up and running fine but the machinfo output doesn't show up the serial no of the server.

here is the output:

dmzdb101#machinfo
CPU info:

Clock speed = 1600 MHz
Bus speed = 400 MT/s

Platform info:
model string = "ia64 hp server BL60p"
machine id number = ffffffff-ffff-ffff-ffff-ffffffffffff
machine serial number =

OS info:
sysname = HP-UX
nodename = dmzdb101

vmunix _release_version:
@(#) $Revision: vmunix: B11.23_LR FLAVOR=perf Fri Aug 29 22:35:38 PDT 2003 $
dmzdb101#


and the other command also doesn't show up.
dmzdb101#
dmzdb101#getconf MACHINE_SERIAL

dmzdb101#


On the front plane of the server, i noticed a serial number which was different from the previous one.

Now, my question is how to assign this new serial number to the server.

Any Help appreciated!!


Thanks in Advance!!

Re: Serial Number Problem

Hi Sridhar,

If you have contract with HP, call them. You will have to do ssconfig to change the Serial Number. Your server's system board may have been changed and the serial number is not updated yet.

Sandy

Re: Serial Number Problem

Forget ss_config, because this is an Integrity.
Anyway, you need to contact HP support and ask them to adjust the settings - you cannot do this on your own.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

HI Jeff,

I tried even that, but the result is still the same.

Re: Serial Number Problem

Looks like the value is "magic" so have a look at this document:

http://docs.hp.com/en/AD9000-90012/AD000-90012.pdf

User Service Guide, Second Edition - HP Integrity BL60p Server Blade

page 64

Removing and Installing a Server Blade After a Server Blade Failure

"->

EFI version 1.10 [14.62]
EFI64 Running on Intel(R) Itanium Processor Family
EFI 1.10 IPF server BL60p 5.41 [Thu Nov 10 15:08:03 2005] firmware by HP
System IDs (including UUID) are undefined (MAGIC).
Licenses will be invalid until UUID is set.
Do you want to set the system IDs (can be set at the shell using: sysset)?
(y/[n])

Enter Y if you want to enter the UUID, product number, and system serial number now

<--"

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
