Re: Serial Number Collection


I am not sure if you are using the correct MIB. There is one MIB that collects the information you are looking for:

Also, you could use CNA (it supports most of the older hardware) and identify the device types in the entire network.

Hope this helps.

Re: Serial Number Collection

Cisco Resource Manager Essentials is an excellent tool for inventory collection:

Solarwinds has several products as well, I recommend searching their web site.  Alterpoint is another company that makes a popular product.

Be aware that serial number collection is not always straightforward on Cisco products.  The capability varies from product to product, for a series of historical reasons. The more mature inventory management products can work through the quirks and inconsistencies, so choose your tool carefully.
