Hardware Configuration Checker Tool??

A while back I found a tool in Cisco's web site that would allow you to select a switch, enter in its modules and check the configuration for errors... Does any one have a link to that tool? I cannot for the life of me find it again...


Re: Hardware Configuration Checker Tool??

Hope this is what you were looking for:

Select the "Select your Hardware Configuration" and you'll get to the switch population stage where you populate eash slot.

I know this is a very old

I know this is a very old thread, but for those who happen upon it, the tools other users have linked here have since been retired for the Cisco Commerce Build & Price Tool at!/

  • Under Estimates and Configurations, select Create Configuration. A new Configuration Set will be created.
  • Expand the Service Preferences toggle button (+) and choose whether or not you want the tool to add recommended services.
  • Click the Find Product link.
  • In the Search textbox, type at least 3 letters of your item name/description (e.g. "nexus 7000") and click the Search button.
  • Scroll down to find your hardware and add it to your cart by clicking the + sign next to the item.
  • Click the Add button in the resulting box under Selected Items.
  • On the subsequent screen, scroll down to your saved item and click the Select Options link to configure PSU's, supervisor and I/O modules, etc.
  • The Show Incompatible SKUs link will show you when options you've selected are incompatible.
