    Viewing Device Inventory in NSM


    NSM displays the hardware and software inventory for each device according to the information it has in its database. For a device with dual Routing Engines, NSM collects the inventory data from the master Routing Engine.

    To view the device inventory, the device must be in the Managed state.


    To view the device inventory, follow these steps:

    1. In the navigation tree, select Device Manager > Devices.
    2. Right-click the device whose inventory you want to view.
    3. Select View/Reconcile Inventory.

      The Device Inventory window opens, similar to the example shown in Figure 1.
