1. Start NetSight Console. 
2. Select all the devices that you want information on from the Device Tree to the left. 
3. Select Tools > FlexView > Add FlexView tab. 
4. Select that new FlexView tab. 
5. Click the FlexView button to the upper left and select Open. 
6. Open the FlexView from the FlexViews > Standards folder called 'Device Inventory'. 
7. Click the green Retrieve button to the upper right (looks like a green play button). 

Once the information is retrieved you can right click on any line of the results and select Table Tools > Export.
