    There isn't one, AFAIK. Most of the Sun servers don't have a machine
    readable serial # (aka the system serial # that's printed on the box).

    Many admins fix this problem by updating the eeprom oem-banner parameter
    with this value prior to putting the system in service. Sounds like you
    didn't. So you'll have to go to the remote site and read the value with
    a flashlight.

    No. Someone has to look at the tag on the rear of the machine!

    Hi..............please find the sneep to solve ur serial number issues
    -

    Sneep provides a persistent, software-accessible Chassis Serial Number
    (CSN) for virtually all Sun Solaris hardware platforms. Sneep uses the
    system EEPROM for storage of the Chassis Serial Number and any other
    important user-defined data such as asset, contract, or location
    information. The presence of the software-accessible serial number and
    other service-related information can significantly simplify activities
    related to system service and asset management.

    This is a full installation of Sneep 2.5_R1.76 with all supporting
    documentation.

    Changes include:

    Release 2.5 rev 1.76

    20050816 Fixed:

    Bug 00016 'tr' causes message "Bad String" in UTF-8 locales

    Revised Documentation

    Updated with Access information for Sun Download Center

    Updated with new internal download URL

    Note: Both Compress (.Z) and ZIP (.zip) formats are available for
    download. Only one of these is necessary, as both formats contain the
    same tar file of the SUNWsneep package.

    After uncompressing, unpack the tarfile using a command like :

    tar xpf SUNWsneep_2.5_Rx.y.tar

    sneep is only a partial solution. You still need to tell Sneep what the
    serial number of the system is in the first place.

    Once you've told it the serial number it will remember it for the future,
    but it is no way of getting it in the first place.
