Re-generate FIS_Letter after new OS version

Greetings to all,

On machines that came with Tru64 v.5.x preinstalled from factory there is a very useful file named "FIS_letter":
/usr/share/doclib/online.Tru64_UNIX/DOCS/HTML/FIS_Letter.html

Is there a procedure to re-generate it after, or while, installing a new OS version?.

If it is not ... is there any way to obtain the Serial Number of the machine from the O.S.?
[I know that it can be obtained from the low level prompt (>>>); i just wonder if it is also possible to get it from all machines via a remote shell command when the FIS letter has been deleted in a re-installation].

TIA
Javier.

Re: Re-generate FIS_Letter after new OS version

Serial number of machine from OS:
# consvar -g sys_serial_num

If you want useful file with informations about machine, do:
# sys_check > /tmp/machine.html
