Hello spunna,

I am not seeing a way to get this information via rest api. You can access this information via the web gui and CLI. Here are the links to those methods if you need them.

I am not able to access this CLI link https://dell.to/48cYZMp. Can you direct me to any other link?

I see some version number and serial numbers in GET /license. Are these related to ECS or license related?

ECS: How to obtain the server chassis and node serial number via CLI

Summary: This knowledge base article explains how to obtain the server chassis and node serial numbers via the CLI.

Audience Level: Customer

Article Content


Instructions

In order to obtain the serial number from an ECS node, we need to understand the layout of the server chassis and node.

To identify a node, we should firstly identify the server chassis which holds 4 nodes. The serial number tag is located between the nodes within the front middle section of the server chassis as follows:
kA5f1000000XZPlCAO_1_0
In order to obtain the server chassis serial number, execute the following command via CLI on any node within the chassis. Note if this is an 8 node system the server chassis serial number will be the same for the first 4 nodes (1-4) while the remaining 4 nodes (5-8) will have a different server chassis number:
 
admin@provo:~> sudo dmidecode | grep -A4 'System Information'
System Information
        Manufacturer: EMC
        Product Name: S2600JF
        Version: FFF
        Serial Number: FC1234567890

Once the server chassis serial number is obtained, you can identify the node serial number which is located under the 1 GbE port on the back bottom left section of each node as follows:
kA5f1000000XZPlCAO_1_1
Execute the following command to obtain the node serial number for the concerning node. Note the node serial number will be different for each node:
 
admin@provo:~> viprexec -i "sudo dmidecode | grep -A3 -e 'Server' -A3 -e 'Mount' | grep -A3 'Chassis'"

Output from host : 192.168.219.1
        Type: Main Server Chassis
        Lock: Not Present
        Version: 105-000-410-01
        Serial Number: FC01234567891

Output from host : 192.168.219.2
        Type: Main Server Chassis
        Lock: Not Present
        Version: 105-000-345-02
        Serial Number: FC01234567892

Output from host : 192.168.219.3
        Type: Main Server Chassis
        Lock: Not Present
        Version: 105-000-345-02
        Serial Number: FC01234567893

Output from host : 192.168.219.4
        Type: Main Server Chassis
        Lock: Not Present
        Version: 105-000-345-02
        Serial Number: FC01234567894

With the server chassis and node serial numbers, you may combine these two serial numbers in order to locate the correct node within a data center for identification and/or activity purposes.
