Re: General Date Codes??


I doubt any (Hardware component related) manufactoring datecode is registered in the firmware...but looking physically to a Switch mainboard (just an example here) - so chassis opened, warranty void - you should be able to find a four numbers numeric code like the 2804 printed near the HP graphic logo (note the typical LCD techno font used) in the picture taken as example, well...generally it should represent - with the standard format WWYY (Week of the Year followed by the Year) - the motherboard manufactoring date.

Note also there is a 25APR03...which is a possible date reference too. Don't know if any Switch's motherboard has these reference stamped or not...but it's a starting point to answer your question.
