Hi Mark

You just need the hostid and Ethernet which are normally related eg for a
hostid of 72c0ffee the Ethernet on the SS20 would normally be 8:0:20:c0:ff:ee

That is all you really need to know, however you may also have some non
standard setup variables, printenv at the OK prompt will normally compare
current with default values.

The standard NVRAM for the SS20 is the M48T18, but I normally use the M48T08
as in the SS5 as it keeps my stock simple and to date after replacing in many
systems, none have had an issue.

All the best

off the machine before I yank the old one out? I already noted down it's MAC
address and Host ID and stuck it inside the case :)
