Finding the Service Tag / Serial number of an appliance remotely

Jump to solution

Are there any ways to find the service tag and/or serial number of a MWG appliance in software from the CLI or web interface without having to physically look at the sticker on the appliance?

Hi Phl!

You can use:

dmidecode -s system-serial-number

This will give you the service tag #. This will not give you the serial number.

If you get all the service tags, and need the serial #'s you can give a call in and we in support have the ability to correlate the two.

(I wouldnt post the service tags here)

Best,

Jon
