Hey all, I'm trying to create an inventory script for systems that will be
loaded via net-boot. I was wondering if there was any useful way to
obtain the serial number of devices like the hard drives, processor,
and/or motherboard. (as far as I can guess, those are the only things
likely to store a serial number in a machine-readable format).
I'm scripting in perl, but of course have nothing against making system
calls to get at the low-level stuff.
Please email me, as I'm not subscribed.
