How I get the Dell Service Tag on Dell Servers running Linux
Dell servers support running Linux and there is cool command that you can run to find the Dell Service Tag. This is helpful if your Data center is located remotely and for placing hardware call to Dell you need to find the Dell server Service Tag number. I had a situation one time when I had to place a call with Dell to replace the disk drive, server was running RHEL5 AS. Running dmidecode saved me a trip to my datacenter. This magic command is located under /usr/sbin directory.
[root@paymentl ~]# which dmidecode
For locating the Service tag from command line run dmidecode command with pipe (|) and grep for serial number, on Dell servers Service Tag number is 7 dight alphanumeric number. Here is how i find the service Tag from the command line on my poweredge servers.
[root@paymentl ~]# dmidecode |grep -i “serial number”
Serial Number: 614KLC1
