Not sure if you didn't recieve my message, but this is where you can
obtain the libsmbios kit i mentioned that works fine:


Additionally, i just verified that the libsmbios 2.2.26

works as well (so might as well grab that):

zia:sbin# ./smbios-sys-info --service-tag
Service Tag: ZQXZQX1

zia:sbin# ./smbios-sys-info --service-tag --set=ZQXZQX2
Current tag value:
Service Tag: ZQXZQX1

Setting new tag value: ZQXZQX2

zia:sbin# ./smbios-sys-info --service-tag --set=ZQXZQX1
Current tag value:
Service Tag: ZQXZQX2

Setting new tag value: ZQXZQX1

So, indeed you can reset it even if it's already set.
