Here is a great tech tip use case to help you determine when a Cisco device was manufactured based on the chassis serial number. This can help with End of Life analysis or tracking inventory based on age.
This powerful use case was for a NetMRI customer that wanted to identify any Cisco device they had on the network that was older than 2009.
The simple and fast process included these key parameters:
- The NetMRI system automatically tracks the entire inventory including chassis serial number
- The customer created a filter based on serial number using a simple RegEx command in NetMRI
- NetMRI created a list of all serial numbers that matched the criteria in less than a minute
- The filter was saved for future use
