Proliant 6500 serial number

I could't see a specific area for this retired product so I posted here.

I recently acquired a Proliant 6500 7u rack server and cannot find the machines serial number in any of the usual places. Possibly it may have been removed.

The m/c was security tagged and I tried their telephone number, but was informed that on this rare occation the previous owner had not registered the serial with them.

Can anyone give me an idea as to how to find the serial number?

Re: Proliant 6500 serial number

do you have any operating system installed? if you have windows installed you can see a filed called survey.txt under c:\compaq\survey there you can find the information you required

If no O/S Installed: boot with Smart Start Cd 5.5 or less run System Partition utility it will gave original S/N of system board, or go to F10 if system Partition Installed. Or first recommendation from Robin should help.
