Cisco SNS-3415 and Cisco SNS-3495 Appliances Overview

The Cisco SNS-3415/3495 server is designed for performance and density over a wide range of business workloads, from web serving to distributed databases.

Building on the success of the Cisco SNS-3415/3495 server, the enterprise-class Cisco SNS-3415/3495 server further extends the capabilities of the Cisco Unified Computing System portfolio in a 1U form factor. The Cisco SNS-3415 server does this with the addition of the Intel Xeon processor E5-2600 product family, which delivers significant performance and efficiency gains. In addition, the Cisco SNS-3415/3495 server offers up to 256 GB of RAM, 8 drives, and 2 x 1 GbE lights-out management (LOM) ports that deliver outstanding levels of density and performance in a compact package.

Product Serial Number Location

The serial number label is located on the front panel of the Cisco SNS-3415 or Cisco SNS-3495 appliance, at the top of the server. Figure 6-1 shows the location of this label.

Cisco Product Identification Tool

The Cisco Product Identification (CPI) tool helps you retrieve the serial number of your Cisco products.

Before you submit a request for service online or by phone, use the CPI tool to locate your product serial number. You can access this tool from the Cisco Support website.

To access this tool:


Step 1 Click the Get Tools & Resources link.

Step 2 Click the All Tools (A-Z) tab.

Step 3 Select Cisco Product Identification Tool from the alphabetical drop-down list.

This tool offers three search options:

    • Search by product ID or model name.
    • Browse for Cisco model.
    • Copy and paste the output of the show command to identify the product.

Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted. Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before you place a service call.

You can access the CPI tool at:

http://tools.cisco.com/Support/CPI/index.do

To access the CPI tool, you require a Cisco.com user ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a user ID or password, you can register at:
