For VG248

Telnet into it:

Main Menu| Display | System status

For MCS7845...

"Cisco MCS images except for the Unity image in the HP diagnostics and configuration record utilities should be preinstalled. On reasonably recent versions, they're accessible right from the Start menu. Go to the Start menu, to HP Information Center, then to Diagnostics for Windows to start the diagnostics utility. In the utility, go to the Categories menu, to Asset Control, and at the bottom of the screen select the 'More' option. This will show the system serial number."

This was from an old jason post

Not sure for the IPVC

If this is CM 5.x running on a MCS server, you can get the serial no. through Cisco Platform administration menu.

I must have a different verizon of the insight manager because my sn is displayed on the top webpage.

Thanks jphillips.
