Can someone help me? I have two sets of Silkwork 3800 swiches that display the same serial number. How can I change the serial numbers? I suspect that my previous coworker may have uploaded/downloaded a config. Would this change the displayed serial number? I'm trying to get some maintenance agreements straightened out so I need to be able to report the correct serial numbers.

Well, I found the ssn command so I think I can fix it but I do still have the question about the configupload/download. Is this what changed it?

The Serial number cannot be changed by User.
I think you mean, the Product Number, and not a SN.

Hhhmmm, well it's the number that is displayed as the serial number in the gui, along with the soft serial number with the ssn command. Is this also the Product Number? I figured out how to correct it, I was just wondering how it got changed.

These are HP-branded brocade switches. I was able to change the serial number on one of them to the correct HP serial number. Was just wondering if a configupload/download would have changed it.

I have simmilar problem and can't solve it.
The whole case is about Software Serial Number ( in this case IBM SSN) on 2005-B16 IBM switch.
First: IBM ssn serial number on the box doesnt match ssn serial number showne by "chassisshow" command.
I think that first is due someone replaced mainboards but not changed soft serial number as it should be done.
Second "chassisshow" s/n it's also different form serial number you can see when browsing "configupload" file.
I think it might be from configuation donwnloaded somwhere on the way by "configdownload -all" command.
Is there a way to solve this situation ?
Is there a tool or command to set serial Software Serial Number as it should be ?
There was "snn" command in OS 2,6 but it's no more.
Factory and root users have some hidden commands, maybe there is something i need ?
Thank you for help in advance.
