I wrote a previous article about obtaining the BIOS version on a Dell Poweredge 650 server which had the end goal of updating the BIOS version on the server if a new BIOS version was available. So after obtaining the BIOS version of the Poweredge 650 server I needed the Dell Service Tag from the server so I could use Dell’s web site to see if a new BIOS version was available. Below is information on how to obtain the Dell Service Tag as well as the Dell Express Service code for the server if it is running a Linux operating system.
I recently needed to look up number support tickets I have opened with Dell in the past couple of years. I had a laptop hard drive go bad and I was trying to remember if it was the second hard drive that had crashed in this laptop in a matter of 3 years. Luckily it was not but my issue was logging into Dell.com and locating the Support History & Status page.
