Hi,

Which is the location on a machine where we can find the serial no (Manufacturer no) of a IBM/DELl machine or is there a way we can scan all the machines and get the serial no's too.Or a tool where we can get all the machine name and serial no's in a Txt file format.

Regards
Sharath

If all the drivers have been installed, then you should be able to find the PC's sn with a utility like SIW, Everest ot Belarc.

OCS is a nice network inventory app that will give you the info you're looking for plus installed software, memory CPU and a lot more, but it may take a little more to setup. Probably only worth setting up if you have more than say 10 or 20 PC's.
