I have a Catalyst 2960 series and there is a statement snmp-server chassis-id 0x07. How do I verify that it is the correct the chassis ID. Show version did not show any chassis id. Thanks

That is setting what the switch will show when somebody queries the switch for its chassis id.

By default the chassis id is normally the serial number.  Don't know why somebody would have changed it to 0x07, unless they were numbering the switches in the network and was using this field to show which switch it was.

You can use the command:

no snmp-server chassis-id 0x07

to remove it.  Search for "chassis-id" in the reference below:

Not sure if you have to "no" it first, but the following should take care of it.

no snmp-server chassis-id 0x07

So the chassis ID is not an identification tat you get from your switch. It is something that you arbitrarily assign to the chassis. Correct?

No.  By default the chassis id is the chassis's serial number.

If you want to use that, then you just:

no snmp-server chassis-id 0x07

then do

show snmp-server chassis-id
