    Anyone know how to locate the manufacturing date for the following
    switch series?
    3750, 3560, 2950? I work at a University and we're trying to inventory
    the dates all of the networking equipment was created on so that we
    can figure out where we have the oldest switches to start replacing /
    upgrading....

    Thanks!

    Do a "show version" and locate the System Serial Number.

    The serial number is in this format: LLLYYWWSSSS

    LLL = location of the supplier
    YY = year of manufacture
    WW = week of manufacture
    SSSS = serial-id

    Year codes:

    01 = 1997
    02 = 1998
    03 = 1999
    04 = 2000
    05 = 2001
    06 = 2002
    07 = 2003
    08 = 2004
    09 = 2005
    10 = 2006
    11 = 2007
    12 = 2008
