Hi

Is there a way to get the PRODUCT NUMBER of an HP Server/Desktop by using DOS?

I have trawled several threads and the primary DOS commands listed only seem to bring up the serial number and model. I struggle with WMIC commands as I have limited scripting knowledge, not least how one would run this.

I know HP Part Surfer will provide PRODUCT NUMBER from serial number, but it would be nice to cut this loop out.

I am 99% sure a techy at an old workplace worked this out, but can't for the life of me remember how.

You get a lot of nonsense but 3/4 of the way down you will see "Product ID: xxxxxx-xxx".

To get the serial number and HP Model in DOS, use the command: wmic csproduct
the serial number will appear before the model.

Use from the command prompt : wmic csproduct get/value
Same as above, just a bit neater.
