Viewing the Physical Inventory of Devices
You can view the physical inventory of all the devices in your network in the Device Physical Inventory page. The Device Physical Inventory page displays information about the slots that are available for a device and provides information about power supplies, chassis cards, fans, part numbers, and so on. Network Director displays hardware inventory by device name, based on data retrieved both from the device during discovery and resynchronizing operations, and from the data stored in the hardware catalog. For each managed device, the physical inventory page provides descriptions for field replaceable units (FRUs), part numbers, model numbers, and the pluggable locations from which empty slots are determined.
To view the Device Physical Inventory page, while in the Build mode select a standalone EX Series switch, a Virtual Chassis, or a wireless LAN controller (WLC) from the View pane and select Device Management > Physical Inventory from the Tasks pane.
The physical inventory page displays the model number, part number, serial number, and description for the following, depending on the device that you selected:
For standalone EX Series switches and Virtual Chassis, the page displays details of the switch, the chassis, the Flexible PIC Concentrator (FPC), the PIC slot, the PIC installed in the PIC slot, the power supply, the fan tray, and the routing engine.
For a controller, the page displays details about the fan and optics used by the controller.
You can view the following details from the Device Physical Inventory page as described in Table 1.
