NA needs to support Serial Number for Brocade MLX's right now Mar driver pack is incorrect RegEx

NA needs to support Serial Number for Brocade MLX's right now Mar driver pack is incorrect RegEx

The March Driver Pack for NA has the wrong RegEx for finding the Serial Number for Brocade MLX switches.  The workaround is to unzip the Foundry_JS.rdp file change the snapshot_parser.js file.

The problem is with the regex expression for

cake.snapshot.patter_SerialNumber = /\n[\t ]+Serial +#: ?(\S+)/;

 A more correct regex pattern that works with Brocade MLX’s should show the following: 

cake.snapshot.pattern_SerialNumber = /\n[\t ]+Serial +#: ?(\S+)|Chassis.*?Serial +#: ?(\S+?)[, ]/;

Once you make the change rezip the file Foundry_JS.rdp and then reload the drivers.  Please fix this defect.

Found another case where above does not quite work, suggest updating to:

cake.snapshot.pattern_SerialNumber = /\n[\t ]+Serial +#: ?(\S+)|Chassis.*?Serial +#: +(\S+?)[, ]/;

We submitted this as a defect, and Support came back and said this is an enhancment. Seems Development and Support are pointing fingers at each other, someone should make a decision which it is.

This was submitted under this case ID: SD02466478  and was escalated and the support engineer asked for this to be put on the idea exchange as an enhancement for the next driver pack.
