Re: find serial number on HP MSA 2012i

Hiya, the following worked for me when registering Care Pack - for MSA 2012 series use AJ747A as a product number. To establish a serial number simply connect via telnet or ssh to your disk array and run show configuration - there will be lots of serial numbers (controlers, disks, PSU,etc )  but you're after a line that says "Configuration SN:"


Hope this helps.
