Finding Serial # and CPU ID from AWS

So frustrating! I have been trying to register with Palo Alto so I can be authorized to use my VM I set up in AWS. No one I have asked seems to know where I can get the following information to use my VM and see the PA portal.  If anyone can tell me exactly whereserial.png I can find this information, please let me know.  Thanks.

I did a quick google search and found this information. It should have everything you need. The first link shows you how to get the serial number from the GUI. You need to have PAYG bundle 1 or 2. If you have bring your own license you need an auth key from Palo Alto Networks.


from the CLI type


>show system info | match serial

>show system info | match cpuid
