  • Hi JD,


    If i recall there isn't really a command to output hardware details of the unit in one command. However, the bigip.license file should have the platform number. You can then go to to look up more details.



  • Hi JD,


    Another way to get detail is to submit serial number to F5s validation site




    Once you submitted the serial number along with your email. F5 automated system will email you details about the platform, warrenty, device ID


    , etc




    I hope this helps






  • Not sure about v4 (been WAY too long) but with tmsh in v10+, the command is:



    tmsh show /sys hardware
