Batch file or VB file to gather specific server info

Hello out there,

I am needing a batch file or VB cmd to gather the below server info.  Please help, my eyes are tired of looking at google.  Also can this info below be gathered across the local network.  I would like to run a script from one server and have it grab this info from other servers on the local network.

1. Current RAM Utilization
2. Last Reboot Date & Time
3. Free space of C:, D: and E:

And I need to know how to permanently set the "File Version" column in Windows Explorer?

You can gather a ton of info using the msinfo32.exe file. This file can be used to dump the information to a .txt file or .nfo file which can then be copied. So you do a simple batch file to run msinfo32.exe with the appropriate switch (example /report {Path} for a .txt report or /computer {ComputerName} for remote computer). It should be noted that this is only for use with XP, Vista, or 7.

I write this with the assumption that you are familar with batch scripting. So bascially run the exe with the appropriate switches and it will start, run the report and save it to the location you specify.

Yeah.... I'm not that smart on batch files.  Sorry I am however learning slowly.  Could you write the script for me please.  By the way how can I automate the info I need for server 2003?

This was ment mainly for Server 2003.  Is there another way to get this info automaticly?
