    The aim of this document is to show discovery team that they don't have to use CISCO IMC API to get the details for UCS iLO serial number without using IMC API.

     

    Here is the documentation how to configure the UCS and defect file with BMC Support.

     

    Most all details can be collected through SNMP GET to retrieve server details OOB – where MIBs are available here:
