Finding Server Model and Serial Number in Linux remotely

Sometime you might need Server Model Name and Serial Number for Documentation, Audit or Warranty Lookup Purpose.

It's easy for Windows server to extract.

But for Linux, I believe, it will be a bit busy if you are not in touch with Linux.

I just want to share on how to for those who not in touch with Linux.

Login to Linux Server that you need to extract information for Server Model and Serial Number.

Key in below command as "root".

"dmidecode -t 1"

You might need to install dmidecode package if you Linux is not pre-installed or lower version.

To install that, just key in below command first.

"sudo yum install dmidecode"

Below sample result are tried in Red Hat and Debian for your reference in command usage and output.

May you all be happy.
(Be knowledgeable, pass it on then)
