    Hardware Inventory Reports

    Understanding Hardware Inventory Reports

    The Hardware Inventory Reports feature enables you to display the available hardware associated with the Live Network.

    There are two ways to make the hardware inventory report available:

    • Run the Scheduling Live Network Collection task with the Configuration and Equipment CLI options selected in the Collection Options window. Then save the network reports in IP/MPLSView by selecting File > Export to Web while in the Live Network.
    • Run the Hardware Inventory Report task periodically with the Live Network and Save Reports on the web options selected in the New Task (Step 2 of 3) - Hardware Inventory Report window.

    From the Routers tab, you can add columns that display the IPv6 addresses, autonomous system (AS) numbers, and hardware id. Figure 1 shows a router inventory report with some of these columns hidden.
