Hi All,

Is there any way to find out the serial number of MCS-7825-I1 on which CCM version 4.X is running? instead of seeing the serial number sticker which is on TOP of box.

it could be the case that some hp management app is installed, sort of diagnostics, I believe you can see the serial from there

Hi Aman,

Just to add a touch to the good tips from Steve;

From Jamie;

"There is a service on the HP servers called "HP System Management Homepage". You need to start this and the browser mgmt interface will become available.

Look under the System Config -> System Board link and you will see the server's serial number."

There are some good ideas for 4.x servers in this thread;

Hope this helps!

HP has a vbs script that reads the serial number from BIOS - It works on IBM servers too:

If web access from the server is restricted, you could RDP/VNC to server:

Open a Notepad, paste in the following text and save file as sn.vbs (select save as type all files, not txt).

strComputer = "."

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _

& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")

Set colBIOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery _

("Select * from Win32_BIOS")

For each objBIOS in colBIOS

Wscript.Echo "Manufacturer: " & objBIOS.Manufacturer

Wscript.Echo "Serial Number: " & objBIOS.SerialNumber


Double click on sn.vbs and it will show the manufacturer (IBM/HP etc ) and the serial number

Hi ,

We have got the local access to MCS and is in production.One way was to restart the system & go to System SETUP by pressing F9 but I am not getting any downtime.Moreover,customer has only one CCM i.e. PUB ,no Subscriber.

the second option as suggested by you.But is there any way to avoid installing VNC and copying these lines & running them.
