Re: Machine ID

Hi,

If you mean the name of the server then 'hostname' will tell you. If want to know what type of server it is then check /var/adm/messages you should find something similar to the extract below

Re: Machine ID


/sbin/hostname ?, or what else do you have in mind with "machine ID",

sizer -v ; psrinfo -v ; uname -a ; ?

Re: Machine ID

another approach is to use
"show config" on srm console or have a look into dia/ca output (configuration entry).
Help() { FirstReadManual(urgently); Go_to_it;; }
