  • How do you get server age automatically ?

    Hi,

    How to identify the server age (from the warranty) so that i know which one needs to be replaced / upgraded, it is all HP and SUN servers and I wonder what is the easiest way to get the server age / warranty status ?

    apart from Spiceworks (if anyone know other option) I'm looking for the automated way because I got hundreds of servers in my current datacenter

    Thanks

    For Dell anyway, put the serial in their site
    Or refer to the original invoices

    AFAIK there wont be anything on the server itself

        As for which servers need to be replaced or upgraded, I'm sure you must already have some way of monitoring the performance of a server...

          HP also have an online warranty checker. Sun's website is a mess these days, isn't anything obvious there.
