UCS Serial Number Collection

I am having trouble collecting the serial numbers of UCS stand alone servers.

It collects the version and model, via the CIMC using SNMP. But the serial number is blank.

I have tried to add the command "show chassis" dataset of the collection profile.

Also added the ssh credentials for those specific IPs.

But I cannot see the CSCP trying ssh to the CIMC.

Re: UCS Serial Number Collection

Are you checking in the SNTC portal for the SN or for CSPC?  You should check in the SNTC Portal.  CSPC won't have the logic for displaying SN from all product types.

Re: UCS Serial Number Collection

Just for the thread.

The issue was that global filter of the portal was not including the new inventory created by the new collector.

The serial numbers do not show on the collector but they do on the portal.

Re: UCS Serial Number Collection

So far the devices have not shown up in the portal at all. I have searched for the IP addresses.

 

Now I am fighting the "Based on your Data Filter selection, you do not have access to this report." problem to have a good look.

Re: UCS Serial Number Collection

I have manged to get the devices to show up in the portal now, but still no serial number. I can see the CSPC is now logging into the CIMC via SSH, but still not able to locate the serial number.

 

This software has the potential to really streamline my day to day management of Cisco devices, it is a pity that it is so flaky.

Re: UCS Serial Number Collection

Hello,

I see you have two CSPCs uploading to the portal, can you please verify in a private message which inventory is in questions here and a few examples of the missing s/n and IPs?

Thank you
