How to retrieve computer hardware and AD object information
Posted on 2009-05-27
I'm inheriting a poorly configured active directory/network that has no documentation and is poorly organized. I need some guidance and suggestions on a few things.
1. They have no record of who has what type of computer and where. They are needing to upgrade old computers but don't know who has what. Is there a way to run a script that will pull hardware information remotely, so we don't have to run sneakernet?
2. Most AD objects don't have location/member information so we don't know what its used for. Is there a way we can query or retrieve the missing information remotely without running sneakernet?
