    Report to list Cisco IOS devices based on age/compile time of IOS

    dsandy

      I want to create a report based on the age (compile time) of the IOS running on my IOS device.  I see in the "description" field of the switches/routers the compile time of the OS is listed.  So I added the "description" field in the report using the "IOS Versions of Cisco Devices" report in the Orion Report Writer.  But the description field seems to be chopped off before the Compile time actually shows in the report.  I get the same result when I run the report in NCM.

       

      For example, the field in the report shows:

       

      "Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software IOS (tm) C2950 Software (C2950- I6K2L2Q4-M), Version 12.1(22)EA14, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1) Technical Support: http://www.cisco.com/techsup... Copyright (c) 1986-2010 by cisco Systems, Inc. Compiled+"

       

      In the node details of NPM/NCM it shows:

      "Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software IOS (tm) C2950 Software (C2950-I6K2L2Q4-M), Version 12.1(22)EA14, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1) Technical Support: http://www.cisco.com/techsupport Copyright (c) 1986-2010 by cisco Systems, Inc. Compiled Tue 26-O"

       

      Yet, when I login to the switch and do a "show version" it shows:

      "Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software

      IOS (tm) C2950 Software (C2950-I6K2L2Q4-M), Version 12.1(22)EA14, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

      Before I give up on Solarwinds and use a perl script I thought I'd ask how this can be done.
