How to obtain the system serial number

Contents


There are two common ways to obtain the system serial number, using the getconf command or the CSTM tool.

Using getconf

# getconf  _CS_MACHINE_SERIAL
USE4619LLX

Using CSTM

Limitations

The accuracy of the information that can be obtained with these methods is limited by the Non Volatil Storage (NVRAM) of each server. Sometimes the information won't be available. If the core I/O board has been replaced by any reason, the replaced core I/O serial number has to be entered into the new one and sometimes the Field Engineers miss this procedure. Entering new serial numbers into a system board can only be performed by an HP Certified Field Engineer, for licensing issues among main reasons.
