Description

This information is actually collected by the fusioninventory and is available as SMANUFACTURER/SMODEL.

However it does not make it to the LDAP and therefore not available for search criteria to build groups. Available fields (i.e. BIOS attrs) are not sufficiently selective.

In our case we have sun and supermicro servers which both have American Megatrends BIOS.

I may be mistaken, but it looks like SMODEL is actually loaded as BIOS Name. Unfortunately, given a sheer number of available Supermicro server models, building a proper search criteria becomes complicated. Besides it does not guarantee that some new model released in the future would be automatically included.

In all considered cases the SMANUFACTURER field clearly identifies the system manufacturer, either Supermicro or Sun Microsystems (well, the later one may now be also "Oracle Corporation", but this is still just two additional cases to consider).
