You can use the following command to get the Dell service tag:

# dmidecode -s system-serial-number

If they say that's not the actual tag, you can just do:

# dmidecode

This will give you a list of a bunch of specs that are built into the
server that they can parse for the correct number.

If dmidecode is not installed, install like so


# yum -y install dmidecode



Is there a way to install dmidecode offline?
