Router Serial Number

Hi,

I know that for a switch, the show version command will give me the system serial number which is the same serial number that I find on the switch box.

Which command can I use to see the box serial number of a router?

Thanks

Re: Router Serial Number

As far as I know, there is no automatic command giving you the serial number of a router. You could configure it using one of the SNMP parameters (E.g. in the location).

Re: Router Serial Number

Routers do not store their chassis serial numbers in 'sh ver' like switches and this is by design. If you want to get this info via SNMP then refer to:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/477/SNMP/chassis.shtml for details.

Re: Router Serial Number

You can configure the router serial number via the snmp chassis-id command, before deploying the router to remote sites. this would help in pulling the info remotely. using SNMP softwares

Hi

It depends on the box and IOS Version, it don't work on 2500 and 4500 Router. The example is from 3640, it works on all 7xxx and 1700,2600,3600 etc.
