Is there a Linux command or system call that provide BIOS serial number of the Linux VM, the VM is created by Hyper-V.
Dmidecode needs root privilege, I want to know whether there is a way to obtain BIOS serial number without requiring root privilege.

as root do a "chmod +s /usr/sbin/dmidecode"
Then a non-privileged user can execute dmidecode.
