Different BIOS Serial Number for VMWare ESX Hosts

Question asked by andrew.hill on Oct 12, 2017

We are looking at the BIOS Serial Number for VMWare ESX Hosts in Snow and most are the same as a recent manual review by the hardware vendor however some are different. What would cause the Host BIOS Serial number be different on the virtual hosts?

 

For example the manual server report shows a host BIOS serial number as CZJ4360208 however Snow shows it as VCY0Z99724
