Finding router serial number.

Is there any way that I can get the serial number via CLI or SDM? I know that when you do a 'show version' you get the motherboard serial number, but I'm wondering if you can get the box serial number.

Re: Finding router serial number.

Hello,

unless the serial number has been somehow entered into the configuration (e.g. with the 'snmp-server chassis-id' command), there is TMBK no way to retrieve the number other than to read it off the box...

Re: Finding router serial number.

Hi,

On newer routers, the command "sh diag" displays the router Serial Number..

NOTE:- I am bit confused whether the command is sh diag or sh module, but I am 100% sure the command produces the desired result.

Re: Finding router serial number.

Hey,

I had been looking around as well and was only able to find link for Catalysts.

Also, if you are running a 720x, from the CLI you can issue show c7200 but I believe that may only show the NPE S/N.

Here are SNMP OID’s in order to retrieve serial numbers for Aironet access points.

Walk ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalSerialNum (1.3.6.1.2.1.47.1.1.1.1.11),

there are several entries: chassis, radio, ...

Part of entPhysicalTable for AP1242AG

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalDescr.1 = "Cisco Aironet 1240 Series (IEEE 802.11a/g) Access Point"

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalDescr.2 = "802.11G Radio"

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalDescr.3 = "802.11A Radio"

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalDescr.4 = "PowerPCElvis Ethernet"

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalSerialNum.1 = "FCZXXXXXXXX"

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalSerialNum.2 = "GAMXXXXXXXX"

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalSerialNum.3 = "ALPXXXXXXXX"

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalSerialNum.4 = ""

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalModelName.1 = "AIR-AP1242AG-E-K9 "

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalModelName.2 = "Radio AIR-AP1242GR:5M80.13"

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalModelName.3 = "Radio AIR-AP1242A:5M80.13"

ENTITY-MIB::entPhysicalModelName.4 = ""

OIDs numerically (entPhysicalSerialNum only)

1.3.6.1.2.1.47.1.1.1.1.11.1 = "FCZXXXXXXXX"

1.3.6.1.2.1.47.1.1.1.1.11.2 = "GAMXXXXXXXX"

1.3.6.1.2.1.47.1.1.1.1.11.3 = "ALPXXXXXXXX"

1.3.6.1.2.1.47.1.1.1.1.11.4 = ""
