    dmidecode should do it in most cases.
    For IBM machines there is also vpddecode (same package as dmidecode).

    lshw is another tool. But as it uses the same approach (and part code) of dmidecode, the result should be effetively the same.

    A different approach would be to get these informations out-of-band.
    Tier 1 server hardware does have remote management (ilo, drac, rsa, etc)
    These can also be queried via e.g. ssh.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
