Need to see what type of disk controller, or network adapter shipped with your box so you can find updates for them. Perhaps you want to know how many or what type of processors or hard drives it shipped with.
The Systems support site has two ways to find what was put into your System x and BladeCenter machine when it was manufactured. This information is useful when looking for drivers and firmware, as well as other uses, such as looking for upgrades, service parts etc.
Starting in July, the service labels shipped with certain IBM BladeCenter, System x, and Flex System compute nodes will provide direct access to installation and parts replacement videos, error messages webpages, service parts listings, and more support related information.
