My laptop had logic board replaced, but i noticed there is no serial number in the system. the service center obviously didn't flash the number back.

can i do that myself ? there is not much info on the web besides this from 2008:

ioreg -l | awk '/IOPlatformSerialNumber/ {print $4}' | sed 's|\"||g'
but i did not test it yet.

You cannot do it yourself. Only an Apple Service Centre or Apple Store has the necessary program.

Definitely careless of the ASP to not flash the serial number back.
Just take it back in and have them flash it.
