(surface2air) #show inventory 
Supervisor Card slot : 0
Supervisor FPGA : None
System Serial# : AA0000483
SC Assembly# : 2010024C (Rev:03.00)
SC Serial# : F00119907 (Date:03/21/06)
HW MAC Addr : 00:0B:86:60:02:DA to 00:0B:86:60:02:DB

Line Card 1 Switch Chip : No Switch Chip
Line Card 1 Mez Card : Absent
Line Card 1 SPOE : Absent

This is particularly handy when activating a new software license which requires the controller serial number.
