Original Question:
I am collecting some SUN Server Inventory Info. I use commands as uname
-a and prtdiag to get system built, CPU and Memory info. Some of my
testing SUN Servers have the prtdiag program installed. So I collect
these info without problem. But one of my SUN production server and
testing server do not have such program. Here, I get a question. Should
I install this program or could I turn around to get these info?

Summary solution:

I have such SUN Servers Systems as

1.	SunOS *** 5.10 Generic_118833-36 sun4v sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-T200
2.	SunOS *** 5.9 Generic_117171-12 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V440
3.	SunOS *** 5.9 Generic_118558-28 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V210
4.	SunOS *** 5.10 Generic_118833-03 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V440
5.	SunOS *** 5.8 Generic_117000-03 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-880
6.	SunOS *** 5.8 Generic_117000-03 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-880
(same as no.5)

I have these SUN Server boxes running either as Testing server and
production. From the number 1. to 4., I use my login account to run
prtdiag program. I can collect CPU and Memory info. But for the number
5. and 6., I cannot run the program as my login account as prtdiag. In
addition, I run the find command as find . -name prtdiag -print and I
get nothing. So I assumed that there is no prtdiag on these servers. But
I was wrong. Instead, I must run the program as the following:
/usr/platform/sun4u/sbin/prtdiag. Now I can collect my CPU and Memory

Here, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to the following
SUN Professionals:

Jaehne, Richard S; Robert Legate; Mike Salehi; Stefan Molnar; gurudatta;
Sudhir; Chris Cariffe; Brent Killion;  francisco roque; Bill Voight;
Brad Morrison.

Many thanks, have a nice weekend.
