Issue/Introduction

We have Devices in Spectrum that were imported using the Modelling Gateway from a previous version of Spectrum.

None of these devices shows a Serial Number

If we delete and re-discover a device, it will then populate the Serial Number

How can we populate the Serial Number attribute without deleting and re-discovering the device models?

Environment

DX NETOPS Spectrum 10.4.2 (20.2)

Resolution

Use the following update action:

REEVAL_SERIAL_NUMBER = 0x00010122

Follow the steps below:

First, find the model handle for one of the devices with missing Serial Number.

1. Go to $SPECROOT/vnmsh from a bash shell (bash -login) and type ./connect to enter CLI

2. Type ./update action=0x00010122 mh=<model handle>

Replace <model handle> with the actual model handle.

Once complete, check whether the Serial Number has been updated for the device.
