Question Can not find Machine SN

I have some VMs where I could identify that they are hosted on SPARC T4-2 .
I am trying to figure out what is the SN of the box/es from gathered explorer logs but the output of the executed commands gave unknown.

Any idea how to get out the SN?

Please let me know if further clarification is needed.

I don't remember a Solaris utility that provides that information, but a simple C program using the sysinfo() function with the command parameter set to SI_HW_SERIAL should get you what you want.

I suspect sysinfo(SI_HW_SERIAL) returned "unknown".
In such case, the SN is on a sticker on the chassis and can be read from the ilom:

so if you have the current explorer tools installed it includes a tool called sneep which does exactly that

Code:
# /opt/SUNWsneep
FML010101X
#

if not you can use the eeprom command:

Code:
# eeprom |grep -i ChassisSerialNumber
nvramrc=." ChassisSerialNumber FML0101010X " cr

do you see anything in "virtinfo -a" output?

Both commands are not included in explorer file.

Unfortunately , I have only explorer logs gathered from the system.

Then you need to upgrade your explorer pkg

Does this mean you don't have access to the system?
