The title of this post just rolls off the tongue.
I wrote a Ruby CLI utility that can batch check iMac serial numbers for their eligibility into the 1 TB Seagate HDD replacement program. The utility takes either an Excel sheet (xlsx, or xls), or a txt file as an argument. If you’re using an Excel sheet you’ll first need to:
- Install the roo RubyGem:
sudo gem update --system
sudo gem install roo
- Format your spreadsheet properly:
- Serial numbers need to be in column A and start on row 2.
- Anything can be in column B but it would be best if it’s something identifiable such as hostnames, or IP addresses.
If you’re using a txt file then you only need to make sure it contains one column of serial numbers. You can grab a copy of the utility from my Github page:
If you run into any problems or have any questions please let me know! I hope it helps.
