Gathering Hardware Information
Posted on 2005-04-12
Good Afternoon Everyone,
I have a problem - that hopefully can be answered or point me in the right direction. I have recently been put in charge of 'inventory' for our office. This means that I have to take inventory of all the workstations and servers in the office. Some of the information I'm looking for is :
Other (1): (additional HDDs or External Items)
Other (2): (additional HDDs or External Items)
If it were possible to get the serial number for these items that would be fantastic also. Which now brings me to my question - is there a way to extract this information from a running system? Are there any scripts, batch files, utilities that can get this information out from Windows? Also, if it would be possible to dump all of this information to a file or text file of some kind, then I can use something like Perl to manipulate the data and insert it all into my database.
Thank you all very much for your help and expert advice,
