Can I get the serial number of SFP in WLC by GUI or CLI?

Hi All,

In WLC, Can I get the serial number of SFP in WLC by GUI or CLI? Seems that the GUI cannot provide this information but this information is useful for inventory management.

Thanks.

Best Regards,
Teru Lei

No..  I dont believe you can...  There is no mechnism for the SFP to transmit its information. Good question ...

I know that this Topic is

I know that this Topic is very old, but I was facing the same issue.

 

The solution is:

Connect via CLI (SSH) to WLC and type "debug fastpath cfgtool --dump.sfp"
you dont need to type "FP0.", thats part of the output

 

I censored the output with XXXXXX:

(Cisco Controller) >debug fastpath cfgtool --dump.sfp

(Cisco Controller) >FP0.
Port SFP Vendor       Transceiver Type    OUI PartNumber       Rev  SerialNumber     DateCode Auth
   1 OEM              (0x01)1000BaseSX        GLC-SX-MM-G-UL   2.0  VB11XXXXXX      110701   ok      
   2 Not Present      (0x00)NOT_SUPPORTED                                                     fail    
   3 Not Present      (0x00)NOT_SUPPORTED                                                     fail    
   4 Not Present      (0x00)NOT_SUPPORTED                                                     fail    
   5 Not Present      (0x00)NOT_SUPPORTED                                                     fail    
   6 Not Present      (0x00)NOT_SUPPORTED                                                     fail    
   7 Not Present      (0x00)NOT_SUPPORTED                                                     fail    
   8 Not Present      (0x00)NOT_SUPPORTED                                                     fail    
FP0.

 

 

hope that helps someone for the next time

Yeap, this works

Yeap, this works Just continue typing the command since 'cfgtool --dump.sfp' is hidden i.e., tab auto-complete will not work

Try "show inventory".

I thought you might be on to something ... but just checked my 4402 and no love ...

I dont think you can get the serial from an SFP on a WLC
