iSeries MAC address

I want to find out the MAC address of the Ethernet card on my iSeries. Do you know how I can find this informa...


I am not aware of any command on the iSeries or in OpsNav that will give you this information. If you are running a windows system, open a connection to your iSeries, and then open a command box (Start... Run... Command on Win95/98/ME or Start... Run... CMD on NT/2K/XP). When you get the command box, execute the command "arp -a". This will show all resolved ARP addresses with the IP and the MAC address for each.
