Dell or Proliant for Linux

Is there any command to tell which hardware the Linux is running on? The server is >1000miles away, impossible to get on site support people to check the physical server.
Any suggestions?

Hi

May be my way of finding the same is not suitable. What about checking the outputs of 'sysreport' (if redhat) or Siga (if suse)?

Check the vendor ID of the MAC address.

Re: Dell or Proliant for Linux

dmidecode will query DMI tables which, on HP hardware, are populated with useful information (I'd hope the same is true on Dell). If running a recent distribution of Linux: "/usr/sbin/dmidecode -t1" should give you the information you want, otherwise "/usr/sbin/dmidecode | grep Product".

Failing that checking kernel messages from early on in the boot process ("less /var/log/dmesg" or "dmesg | less") will often give you useful information. Again, an up to date distro/kernel is better.
