    Viewing the Physical Inventory

    Junos Space Network Management Platform displays the physical inventory of a device containing data retrieved from the device during discovery and resynchronization operations and from the data stored in the hardware catalog. This inventory includes the number of available slots for managed devices, power supplies, chassis cards, fans, part numbers, and so on.

    Sorting is disabled on the View Physical Inventory page to preserve the natural slot order of the devices.


    • If you select a chassis cluster device, information about both the primary and secondary devices is displayed.
    • If you select a device with dual Routing Engines, the inventory data collected from the primary Routing Engine is displayed.
    • If you select an aggregation device, the inventory data from the aggregation device and the satellite devices is displayed.

    To view the physical inventory:

    1. On the Network Management Platform user interface, select Devices > Device Management.

      The Device Management page displays the devices managed by Junos Space Platform.

    2. Select a device whose physical inventory you want to view.
    3. Select Device Inventory > View Physical Inventory from the Actions menu. Alternatively, right-click the device name and select Device Inventory > View Physical Inventory.

      The View Physical Inventory page is displayed. You can expand certain categories (for example, the Routing Engine category) to view data for all memory (RAM and disk) installed on the device components.

      If you select multiple devices, expand the category next to each device to view the physical inventory of the device.

      Table 1 displays the columns on the View Physical Inventory page.

      Note: The device inventory for a Junos Space Platform installation that contains Service Now and Service Insight includes columns related to service contracts and the end-of-life status. For detailed information, see Displaying Service Contract and EOL Data in the Physical Inventory Table.

      The address group subtypes—namely, the location and ship-to-address of a device—are displayed as columns only if Service Now contains an address group and the managed devices are associated with the address group. If no address group is configured in Service Now, these columns are not displayed.

    4. (Optional) To view all the physical inventory of a device, click the – (minus) icon next to a Flexible PIC Concentrator (FPC).

      The inventory associated with the FPC collapses to a concise view.

    5. (Optional) To view the physical inventory of a satellite device connected to an aggregation device, click the + (plus) icon next to an FPC (range: 100–255).

      The inventory of the satellite device associated with the FPC is displayed.

    6. (Optional) To view the physical interfaces of an inventory element, right-click and select View Physical Interfaces.

      The View Physical Interfaces page id displayed. Unresolved xref describes the information that can be viewed on the View Physical Interfaces page.
