Identifying end-of-sale and end-of-life hardware

You can generate a Device Inventory Report (or filter the Device list) for all devices that contain an end-of-sale (EOS) or end-of-life (EOL) hardware entity (for example, by PID).

To identify end-of-service and end-of-life hardware

  1. Select Reports > Device Inventory Report
  2. Set the Network Span to Entire Network.
  3. Select Filter Devices, and set the Device Type to Cisco IOS Switch/Router, Cisco Nexus, or Cisco XR Router.
  4. Select the Inventory tab, and set the PID to the announced hardware item. You can use wildcards.
  5. Set the Device Inventory to display Hardware Inventory: Entities +.

  6. Click Next.
    The Device Inventory Report is displayed.

To determine service true-ups

In addition, you can calculate service true-ups for products that Cisco has reached EOS during your current service period. Generate a Device Inventory report filtered by Entire Network and the PID. Calculate the difference between the contract Contract End Date and the EOS date for your service credits.
