Working with CATOS on Catalyst6506, is there any way to identify between a fan-try WS-C6K-6SLOT-FAN and a WS-C6K-6SLOT-FAN2? there is?nt this code part number in the part.

Is there any catos command to identify the fan-try type?

Hi Mohammed,

Thanks in advance for your help.

With the show environment all the info about fan installed is:

Fan? Model?????????????? Ver Cooling? Ambient FanStatus

???????????????????????????? capacity temp

---- ------------------- --- -------- ------- ---------

1??? WS-C6000-CL?????????? 1? 260 cfm??? -????? ok

For Cat6506 chassis I know only 2 fan-tray types WS-C6K-6SLOT-FAN and WS-C6K-6SLOT-FAN2.

What type WS-C6000-CL fan-tray is?

You are very welcomed, try "show inventory":


Console> show inventory

NAME: "Chassis", DESCR: "Cisco Systems WS-C6509 9 slot switch"

NAME: "7", DESCR: "Network Analysis Module 2 port WS-X6380-NAM Rev. 0.201"

Hi Luis,

I've been searching for a while for a solution for you, but i couldn't find one, "show inventory" was the best option but as you've said i've made sure that its not usable with your code.

I'll keep you updated if i found something new.
