How to retrieve serial number of proliant server

This time I needed to get serial number of hp ProLiant DL380 server without taking the server out or even going next to that server so I find out that it’s pretty easy to get serial number of that server with a sort wmic command and some magic parameters.

Just open command prompt and say:

wmic /node:HOSTNAME bios get serialnumber

And you should get lines like:

SerialNumber
ABC123DEFG456

And of course you can also do something like this:

wmic /node:%computername% bios get serialnumber

This same tip probably work most of ProLiant servers.
