Displaying Compatibility Information of a Device

Displaying Compatibility Information of a Device


Generally, device versions have matching NMS software. The NMS software needs to apply to all the devices supported by matching versions. Otherwise, the NMS cannot manage devices. If a device is developed based on a later version that does not match the earlier NMS version, the NMS cannot manage this device.

To decouple the NMS version and device version, a compatible device model developed based on an earlier version is defined for each device model. If the NMS cannot manage a device because of version mismatch, obtain information about the device compatible with the current device. The NMS can then use the obtained device information to manage the current device.

For example:

S5700LI_R7 is a device model newly available in V200R007. The NMS software version that matches the device software version is V200R007.

S5700LI_R5 is a device model newly available in V200R005. The NMS software version that matches the device software version is V200R005.

When you use the NMS of V200R005 to manage S5700LI_R7, the device cannot be managed because of version mismatch. The NMS then obtains compatibility information about S5700LI_R7 and learns that it is compatible with S5700LI_R5. Subsequently, the NMS uses information about S5700LI_R5 to manage the current device.


  • Run the display compatible-information command to view compatibility information of the current device.
