I have run into a strange situation I was hoping someone could help with. I have an audit being run on our appliance running Ubuntu 12.04 ESM. I am told the the ESM version of Ubuntu is installed but I need to prove this to our Secuirty audit team.

Does anyone know of a command or way to prove that ESM is installed?

    What level of proof are you looking for? Your /etc/apt/sources.list file and /var/lib/apt/lists folder will have esm repos in. lsb_release -a should say you're on 12.04 and ESM. ubuntu-advantage status should indicate ESM is enabled. But it might be pertinent just to ask the ESM support team if you're needing some sort of proof of wider system status. – pbhj Apr 25 '18 at 23:27

ubuntu-advantage status gives the current status of a system wrt to ESM and other Ubuntu Advantage offerings.
