How do you find out the ID of a motherboard remotely (i.e. without
opening the box) on a Linux (Redhat 6.1/6.2) x86 rackmount server?
I've got two, both with Supermicro boards, one with a single CPU
on a dual board to which I'm planning to add a second. However, I
want to check the rev of the board and make sure that they'll
support the new chips.
So, without going through the complex process of checking every
single feature and trying to do a 'points of similarity' match
against known features, what's the best way to ID a board?
