I admire your effort to try to automate this process... However, I don't think it's necessary. You don't have to send a diagnostic report to HP to obtain a warranty part.

I'm not 100% on the command from a windows/rdp terminal, but you can run OpenManage commands via command line in Linux like this: omreport storage pdisk controller=0 Of course, this depends on your ...
