Yes, there any many ways. You may install any hardware reporting software (such as Sandra, Everest, etc.). They'll report the detailed info on your motherboard including serial number.

If you're asking "built-in" tools, there's none.

Hi Aman,

Try this: copy the following in Notepad and save it in server's desktop as .vbs file.

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


Once finished, double click and should show you the Serial number.

Hope it helps.

Good luck,

- Adrián.

For Linux platforms (5.x, 6.x, 7.x), you might be able to get the serial number from OS Admin web page or the "show hardware" CLI command.

See for screenshots.

In case you can't retrieve the serial number from CUCM 5.x or 6.x with the show hardware or GUI, you can use SNMP.

1.- Configure an SNMP community string in Cisco Unified Serviceability Page (SNMP->V1/V2c->Community String).

2.- SSH to CUCM IP address and execute the following:

utils snmp walk 2c .

(In CUCM 7, the show hardware command is already fixed so it really shows the serial number).

Good luck,

- Adrián.

Adrian , I'm running UCM v6.0.1.2000-3.

I gave your suggestion a try but it failed with "No valid Command Entered".

I ran help for "utils snmp" and 'walk' is not supported. Help shows that only "utils snmp test" is supported with my version of UCM.

Did I miss something? Any other suggestions?
