Sure there is - todays memory sticks all have a serial EEPROM that can
be read with e.g. decode-dimms from lm-sensors.

Is there an equivalent command to read the serial number of other
devices? Specifically I need the serial number of an HP DL 360.

dmidecode comes standard in recent openSUSE and it will read the BIOS
DMI data. I have found HP does a very good job at insuring all the DMI
data is correctly set -- so the answer is run dmidecode as root!
