HI Senthil,

On redhat system the command dmidecode will give you the hardware information. you can find the system serial number there.

Shalom,

As an alternative, if you have the PSP release installed on the system, you can pull this information from the built in web page that is configured as part of PSP.

Hi Senthil,

The following commands will give detailed about the information of the system, including serial numbers

For redhat -'sysreport' or 'sosreport'
For Suse - 'siga'

If the HP hardware monitoring driver (= one of the sub-sets of PSP) is installed and a non-ancient version, you should also have the "hpasmcli" command.

Example of use:

# hpasmcli
(copyright message)
> show server
(server model, serial number, basic memory/CPU configuration info)
> show dimm
(detailed memory configuration info)
> help
(list of available commands)
> show
(list of available "show X" commands)

You can enter into the hpasmcli utility by firing :

 

hpasmcli;

then inside this utility :

 

hpasmcli > show server

 

it will give you the serial number as well as server model & processors.
