Dell 2950 – which generation do I have? Gen I, Gen II, Gen III

11 Aug

Finding this out is more difficult than it should be. Apparently the Generation III’s use 54xx processors.. you can check:

cat /proc/cpuinfo

This suggested that it was a Generation III, but I wanted to know for sure.

I used OpenManage to find:

1. Need to start OpenManage –

    /opt/dell/srvadmin/sbin/ start

2. Now go to https://localhost:1311. You can use normal user credentials.

3. Navigate to System->Main System Chassis->Information (tab).

4. Read the “System Revision”
