Ever wonder how they come up with serial numbers for HP servers? Take this for instance serial number (made this up on my own, so any match to a real serial number is completely coincidental): USE8441234. Here’s what each piece means:
- US = Country Code, in this case, obviously the United States
- E = Site Code, possibly Houston, but I can’t find anything definitive
- 844 = Manufacture Date, 2008 week 44
- 1234 = Unique Sequential Identifier, the unit number for that week
Not entirely useful for anything other than trivia, but it is something fun to understand.
