check external hardware connected to linux/solaris machines

hello,

I'm planning to do inventory of all our servers but this time it's more on physical. Meaning I would like to check all hardware connected to it (external only like storage, power support) including the count Would like to get perhaps its serial nr..(linux and solaris different servers sun/hp/ibm)

is there a command for this one? can you suggest on how to? Afterwards, we'll just check it onsite for confirmation

thanks,
lhareigh

For HP:
PA-RISC HP-UX (itaniums have an equivalent...) use /opt/ignite/bin/print_manifest or machinfo (11.23+)
For AIX:
you can use /usr/sbin/prtconf...

just FYI, prtconf is also on solaris
