Hey all,

Just a quick one - anyone have any idea how to get the system serial number for a v240 without getting up and out of your chair? I've had a look at the docs, can't see anything...

    Short answer is that you can't unless you have stored the serial number somewhere convenient.

    just like tintin mentioned, there's no command or files that would help in getting the serial number of the server.
