Get Avaya Server Serial numbers remotely

Get Avaya Server Serial numbers remotely

Have several Avaya AVP servers used for SMGR, SM, CM, etc. dotted about the world that we do not know the serial numbers for, they need adding into GRT is there a way to get the 18Nxxxxxxxxxx Avaya serial number from the devices? If you login to the AVP ESXi Shell and issue the command "esxcli hardware platform get" you get a serial number but not the Avaya one that is in the GRT Install Base.

RE: Get Avaya Server Serial numbers remotely

Use putty and console into the server Linux shell with an account that has some admin privileges. Issue the command "dmidecode -t system". Serial Number should be about 7 or 8 lines down.

RE: Get Avaya Server Serial numbers remotely

so on AVP 8.0 I am guessing that cannot be done in the ESXi so if you do it on Utils or on Session Manager server VM's output is:

$ sudo dmidecode -t system

# dmidecode 3.0
Getting SMBIOS data from sysfs.
SMBIOS 2.4 present.

Handle 0x0001, DMI type 1, 27 bytes

So the serial is not the Avaya one.
