Serial numbers starting with 10 were all manufactured in Rochester.  Serial
numbers starting with 78 were manufactured in Mexico (AS/400's are no
longer manufactured there), 44 in Italy and 65 in Ireland.  Serial numbers
theoretically are unique, however I can tell you from running the TAA
database that duplicate serial numbers do exist in the world.

I don't know if IBM can tell you the year of manufacture based on a
particular serial number, but if your procurement people have a pulse, you
can assume that they purchased the most current equipment available at the
time, and figure it based on that.

Got an odd request from one of our managers.  He needs to know the
manufacture
date of all of our AS/400s.  I think he's making a case for replacing them
with new iSeries.  I physically checked our 9406-D60 and 9402-400 boxes at
this location, and could find nothing on these boxes regarding date of
manufacture.

I would imagine that Rochester would have this information, but who would I
call?  And what about the two boxes we have that were made overseas?
