Rasberry Pi 4 cpu ID

Hi, I recently bought a Rasberry Pi 4 from Core to replace one in my Sensecap miner that had a bad network module. I’ve installed it with the radio module and the miner is working fine. However to access its dashboard to run diagnostics, reboot, shutdown etc i need the Rasberry’s cpu ID and serial #. I’ve tried to SSH into it without success, so wondering if anyone knows of a way to get those IDs another way? Thanks in advance for any help.

See if this helps, John.

Welcome to the forum


Than for the forum welcome. They’re all great solutions, the problem with them is that they all require you to get to the command line which I can’t seem to. If I plug a monitor via hdmi onto the Pi, all I get is a splash screen, no command line. So I used PuTTY key gen to generate public and private keys then posted the public key into the SSH key section of config.json, then tried to use PuTTY to open a session. I used the static ip address issued by my router to get access to a cmd screen and got a login prompt asking for password but I don’t have one for the Pi. I tried using “root” but that doesn’t work. Do Pis normally require a login with either/and uname and/or pword because I haven’t had to use either of them before?

Hi John,

Welcome to the forum!!

Which OS was your Pi running?

The default login details for Pi OS are as follows:
Username: pi
Password: raspberry

You also should be able to flash a new card with the GUI version and run the commands.

Let us know how you go!

Hi Liam,

I’m not sure which OS, I’m not home until tomorrow arvo so I’ll try the login then. Thanks for your help.
