That's a tough one. I dont think there is any command which will tell you the mfg date of the switch.

hi, sh tech-supp does not show any production dates ! only the software release dates und the uptime is shown here... the only hint is as earliery noted look at the chassistop - the yellow laser class product note shows the manufactured date e.g Jul 16 2002

that is if it is still there----

good hunting..

I was hoping to find something that works remotely. I don't have the luxury of having someone at all of the sites. I can approximate the ages using model and IOS release dates. etc. but the bean-counters are looking for real answers. Thanks all for your help.
