Locating the System Serial Number

You might need to have your system serial number when you ask for service on your system. Record this number for future use. Use one of the following methods to locate your server serial number:

  • On the front panel of the server, look at the bottom left of the bezel to locate the server serial number.

  • Locate the yellow Customer Information Sheet (CIS) attached to your server packaging. This sheet includes the serial number.

  • From Oracle ILOM:

    • From the Oracle ILOM command-line interface (CLI), type the command: show/SYS.

    • From the Oracle ILOM web interface, view the serial number in the System Information tab.

  • From Oracle System Assistant, view the serial number in the System Overview (home screen).
