    Vmware shows Enclosure Serial number instead of the Blade Serial number

    bulabog Novice

      Hi All,

       

      We use HP BL460 blades running ESXi 6.5 using the HP Image. We noticed that from vcenter, all the serial numbers displayed under the Monitor > Hardware Status tab is that of the Enclosure rather than that of the Blade. Connecting directly to the  Web interface of ESXi host and shows the same result. Even RVTools shows the Serial number of the Enclosure and not the Blade.

       

      Using powerCLI and running $esxcli.hardware.platform.get.Invoke()  on the ESXi host will show the correct Serial Number of the blade....

       

      Is this a bug?

       

      Thanks.
