A Media Access
Control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier assigned to network
interfaces for communication on the physical network segment. The serial number
is on the back panel of the appliance. If you do not have easy access to the
back panel, you can get the appliance's serial number by logging on to the LOM
port. You can also retrieve the parameter settings assigned to the IP addresses
configured on the appliance, such as the state of ARP, ICMP, telnet, secure
shell access, and dynamic routing.
