Hi,

i am not sure if this is applicableand if you are asking for Product Keys/ Licenses
this is a .exe file which you will run that on the system and it should display product keys you don't need to install it,

Try it on your system, extract the file and run the Keyfinder.exe.

http://downloads.sourceforge.net/keyfinder/keyfinder.2.0.1.zip?use_mirror=osdn

Hope this helps.

Sorry about that,

What kind of systems do you have, for example with Dell systems you can go in to the BIOS and there you can read the service tag: which are the serial numbers for Dell systems.

I will try to find how to pull up the serial with exe scripts. or the same in the registry

If you have a RSA (IBM0, or a RIB (HP) etc , installed.
Remote into it, and it list the model and serial number of the server.
Vendors display this info in different ways.  You need to sprcify the brand of servers and wkstations.  Too many possiblities otherwise.

Hello AlliantTech,

It's not possible to find a Dell ServiceTag trough the registery (it is'nt stored there) but you can read it from the system's bios using the following VBScript.

Good luck!
strComputer = "." 
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _ 
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2") 
Set colSMBIOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery _ 
("Select * from Win32_SystemEnclosure") 
For Each objSMBIOS in colSMBIOS 
Wscript.Echo "Serial Number: " & objSMBIOS.SerialNumber 
Next 

Open in new window

just save it as filename.vbs and run, offcourse you can edit it to suit your needs, or even edit it so it actially saves the service tag in registery and put it in a logon script so at next logon, each computer will have a registery key with its servicetag.

(or let it save it somewhere else, on your server for example)
