Ciscoworks RME inventory reporting - 2811 routers

Hi all,

I have a problem with RME's inventory reporting for our 2811's whereby RME reports the WIC and HWIC modules as all having the same serial number (4294967295 - which funnily enough is 2 power of 32 minus 1). This is across a large number of routers and IOS's.

Using LMS 2.6 / RME 4.0.5.

An example is attached of an RME custom report to show all modules and their s/n's.

thanks,

Marty.

Re: Ciscoworks RME inventory reporting - 2811 routers

RME is using a deprecated MIB for this platform probably because the platform does not fully implement the ENTITY-MIB yet. There has been a slow migration towards the ENTITY-MIB, so the 2800 will definitely be covered in an upcoming release, but doing so will require coordination between the CiscoWorks and device engineers.

This may be a problem with the OLD-CISCO-CHASSIS-MIB implementation on this router. Choose one affected 2800, and get a walk of the cardTable from this router.

Hi Joe - thanks for the prompt reply. Walk attached (doesn't look too good...).

This is what I expected. The OLD-CISCO-CHASSIS-MIB does not have the instrumentation for card serial numbers for the 2800 platform. And currently, that's what RME requires to build the inventory data.

thanks again Joe. So RME is using an outdated MIB to gather card info and for the 2800's we are well out of luck?

Marty.

Re: Ciscoworks RME inventory reporting - 2811 routers

Just out of curiosity, and since I don't have a 2800 router handy, what does a walk of entPhysicalSerialNum return?

Hi Joe,

Entity mib produced the serials as attached.

thanks,

CSCsi83971 has been filed to accelerate the conversion to the ENTITY-MIB for the 2800 and 3800 series router platforms.
