Locating hardware components

You can use the web console, or the ap locate command to view the physical location of a specific hardware component, such as a switch, or a node.

Procedure

  • Use the web console: Go to Hardware overview > Graphical overview. Select the component and click View details. Open the Properties section, and look for physical_location.
  • Use the ap locate <component_name> command. Specify the component that you want to find as a parameter, for example: enclosure1, enclosure1.node1, mgtsw1a:
    [root@e1n1 ~]# ap locate enclosure1
    
    Component name: enclosure1
    	Rack ID                 : 1234
    	Location Description    : 12
    	Rack Location           : Krakow
    	Rack UID                : 1
