Dell reps, would you be able to forward this bug report to the
appropriate team within Dell? I doubt it'll get through the normal
Affected version: iDRAC6 firmware version 3.42 (Build 3) and older.
The SM-CLP shell prints the wrong system UUID, likely due to a mistake
in the endian handling in libcmpiOSBase_ComputerSystemProvider.so.1.0.
Here's how it looks in comparison to the SMBios system UUID:
-> show admin1/system1
SMBios system UUID, as reported by dmidecode and similar tools:
The first three parts are mangled, and a leading zero is missing. See
the SMBios v2.7.1 spec, section 2.7.1 for details on the UUID encoding.
On a side note, it seems the iDRAC6 smclp shell does not support the
<verb> <target> <property> syntax required by the spec:
-> show /admin1/system1 OtherIdentifyingInfo
COMMAND SYNTAX ERROR :
show /admin1/system1 OtherIdentifyingInfo
