Reading monitor serial number through a network

Does anyone have an idea about this. We run a couple of thousand 2312s, 2314s, and 2317s connecting to Dell desktops and Lenovo laptops. Our install of Altiris and LanSweeper gives us a strange serial number for these monitors.

Example 2317 SN: CG1G3673849B

Is this a chip from the monitor reading back from a network scan? Any ideas?

Thanks!

RE: Reading monitor serial number through a network

That (CG1G3673849B) is for the P2317H monitor.

CG1G3 = Dell model part number

6738 = manufacturer code

49B = manufacturer date

You can use google search to identify the Dell 5 digit model number.
