WaaS Central Manager - device serial number report available?

Hi folks,

just wondering if anyone knows a quick/easy way to talk to the WAAS database to pull serial number information for all of my WAE's installed.  i have 35 devices scattered around 7 states and I'm hoping for an easy way to collect serial number info.

I was hoping the platform report from the CM would do it, but it does not provide serial numbers of each chasis, only model and software version.

My thought is the CM probably has this data somewhere?  I'm hoping to avoid having to manually telnet to 35 appliances and run the command 'show inventory' to find the appliance I am looking for.

anyone have a good shortcut?

also - anyone know what the database format is?  mysql? postgres?

Re: WaaS Central Manager - device serial number report available

The best way to collect serial # remotely from a WAAS device (WAE) is by executing 'show hardware'. You may write a script to get it.

CM don't provide this info currently.

Can you please unicast me at '' so that I will be able to understand your requirements.
