    Yeah ring someone up at the other end and ask them!

    No serious now, I dont think it can be done through the IOS, I know that the 7200 MIB's Support serial numbers so if you running SNMP etc you may be able to obtain it that way. The full MIB spec for the 7200's is here

    I certainly know we get the chasis for 6K and 4K series CATS through MIB's (I cant remeber which ones)

    If you do find it let me know.

    I don't think that gets you the chasis serial number. Don't think there is a way...

    entPhysicalDescr.1 = 7200 Chassis

    entPhysicalVendorType.1 = cevChassis7200

    entPhysicalContainedIn.1 = 0

    entPhysicalClass.1 = chassis(3)

    entPhysicalParentRelPos.1 = -1

    entPhysicalName.1 = 7200 Chassis

    entPhysicalHardwareRev.1 = E

    entPhysicalFirmwareRev.1 =

    entPhysicalSoftwareRev.1 =

    entPhysicalSerialNum.1 = SCA070400D8

    entPhysicalMfgName.1 = Cisco Systems Inc

    entPhysicalModelName.1 = 73-5916-02

    entPhysicalAlias.1 =

    entPhysicalAssetID.1 =
