I need to create a report with model and serial number of all my Cisco switches.
Easy enough for the big iron but as stacks of stackable switches are managed as one entity I am finding it a bit trickier.
The chassis inventory report that comes bundled with NetMRI includes the data but I really don't want to manually remove all the other items (power supplies, optics, fan's etc..)
Any input on creating a custom report I can run against the group switching to find all the stackable switches would be great.
While it's ugly I'm leaning towards a custom report and filter on model numbers I use in stacks, seems ugly but I'm not finding a more elegant solution thus my post.
Thanks in advance for any input

I'm looking at the component inventory of one of our cisco catalyst37xxStack switches. The component name appears to always be a number (e.g. "1", "2", or "3") and the Class equals "chassis". I would think you should be able to produce a filter on a report to provide the list you need. In our network any of the stacked switches follow a naming convention on the hostname ending with "-SSWdd" where "dd" is a sequential number. So it is easy to pick out all of the stacked switches based on the name.
