Remote WMIC for Dell Service Tag

Having some issues.

@echo off
SYSTEMINFO /S “servername” /U “Doamin”\”username” /P “password” /FO CSV >> "C:\My\Desktop\INFO.csv"

Works like a champ. But it does not give me the Dell Service Tag that I need.

@echo off
wmic csproduct get name,vendor,identifyingNumber >> "C:\My\Desktop\Service_Tag_INFO.csv"

works locally, with identifyingNumber being the service tag, but I cannot get it to work remotely.

I need to combine these two and so far, nada. Ultimately I guess,  I just need to get the second one to work.

I have tried;

wmic /node:”Machine-Name” csproduct get name,vendor,identifyingNumber >> "C:\My\Desktop\Service_Tag_INFO.csv"

with no luck. I get “Invalid Global Switch” I certainly plead ignorance to all of the subtleties of using WMIC, so any thoughts would be appreciated.

I am trying to run this from a Windows 7 Professional box to multiple Server 2008R2 boxes. I have turned on WMI through the firewall on the one test server I am trying to hit. As well as in the Inbound and Outbound rules.

You could try something like this, which uses the Win32_SystemEnclosure Class to pull the SerialNumber property.

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 "Dell Service Tag: " & objSMBIOS.SerialNumber
Next

You could also do something like this, which would allow you to run this against any number of PC's or Server's, etc. and write the results to a log file.

On Error Resume Next
Const svcTag_LOG = "\\Path_To_Log\svcTag_LOG.txt"
Const ForReading = 1

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile _
    ("\\Path_To_ServerList\servers.txt", ForReading)

strText = objTextFile.ReadAll
objTextFile.Close

arrComputers = Split(strText, vbCrLf)

For Each strComputer in arrComputers
    	'Wscript.Echo 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 "Dell Service Tag: " & objSMBIOS.SerialNumber
Set objLogFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(svcTag_LOG, 2)
objLogFile.WriteLine ("Dell Service Tag for " & strComputer & " is " & objSMBIOS.SerialNumber)
Next
Next
