Question:

How does CA ITCM Agent captures the Hardware Serial Number on SUN SPARC OS?

Environment:
All versions of CA ITCM.
Answer:

The ITCM uses below command to fetch serial number. 

/usr/platform/`uname -i`/sbin/eeprom | grep ChassisSerialNumber | grep -v 'data not available'  

Here are more details regarding the above command.

/* 
* SUN provides sneep tool to store the chassis serial number in EEPROM 

* The administrater would have to look at the back of the machine, note the number, 
* and type "sneep -s $serial_number" 

* The info is then appeared in EEPROM as: 
* nvramrc=." ChassisSerialNumber 83EF7FB5 " cr 

* which can be extracted with 
* "eeprom -v | grep ChassisSerialNumber" 
*/
