Exadata Serial Numbers

Just a quick post (mostly so I can find the info quickly myself when I want it). Here’s how to get the master serial number for an Exadata Rack:

ipmitool sunoem cli ‘show /SP system_identifier’

Apparently by convention the Exadata Rack serial number is appended to the end of ILOM system identifier string. Here’s an example:

[enkdb01:root] /root 
> ipmitool sunoem cli 'show /SP system_identifier'
Connected. Use ^D to exit.
-> show /SP system_identifier
 
  /SP
    Properties:
        system_identifier = Sun Oracle Database Machine _YOUR_SERIAL_NUMBER_HERE_
 
 
-> Session closed
Disconnected

Thanks to Dan Norris for that bit of info.

You can also get the individual serial numbers for each component in an Exadata Rack like this:

/opt/oracle.SupportTools/CheckHWnFWProfile -S

So you would log on to each machine and run this. Here’s the output from one of the DB Servers in our system:

 
> /opt/oracle.SupportTools/CheckHWnFWProfile -S

    Hi Kerry,

    In the Owner’s Guide of Exadata, serial number is get with the following command :

    ipmitool sunoem cli "show /SYS product_serial_number"
    Connected.Use ^ D to exit.
    >show /SYS product_serial_number
    /SYS
    Properties:
    product_serial_number =
    

    Does this command return the same from DB machine host and cell storage ?

    You mentionned “Exadata Rack serial number”, does this serial number correspond to a value return by the above command on the db machine an/or cell storage.

    Regards.

      Hi guys

      The master serial number is set during installation of Exadata via ipmitool.

      According to documentation :

      “The rack master serial number is located on the top left side wall, when viewed from rear, inside the rack on the rear of the chassis.
      It is also on the front rack frame on the left side inside the door, in the center near
      the vented panels.”

      Product_serial_number on DB machine and storage server are serial number of each host.

      best regards

    Thanks dawei,

    Our rack has the serial number sticker in the back but not on the front. Someone may have taken the one on the front door off. The sticker matches the paperwork, which matches the output of the ipmitool sunoem cli ‘show /SP system_identifier’ command.

    davidr,

    That command shows the serial number of whatever machine you are logged into, so no it is different from machine to machine and is not the master serial number.

    /opt/oracle.SupportTools/CheckHWnFWProfile -S

    You’ll need to be root to run the command.
