Ensure you have dmidecode to translate DMI table into human-readable format.

SMBIOS = System Management BIOS
DMI = Desktop Management Interface

This table contains a description of the system's hardware components, as well as other useful pieces of information such as serial numbers and BIOS revision

To find out your serial number (aka. service tag in dell world)
yum -y install dmidecode
dmidecode -s system-serial-number
OR
