Dear experts

Is there a way i can see what type of memory a remote machine has? i.e. what speed and also how many slots are being used / free

By remote machine i mean machines on the same domain and network without having to physically open the case or installing any software on the individual machines.

You can use SIW to run it on the remote PC.

Forgot to mention i need a solution which doesn't involve installing any software on any of the client machines. I can install software on my own though.

MAN!  I have a script that will do this for you, but I didn't save it to my SkyDrive.  I'll upload first thing in the morning.

It runs against a list of machines stored in a text file and saves everything in a spreadsheet.

<The only caveat is that Excel has to be installed on the machine that it is being run from>

Ok, here is the script and the supporting files.
Put the list of machine names in the servers.txt file, then run the script.

Everything dumps into an excel file in the same folder you run from.  VERY helful and will give you what you want as well as more info about each server.

**Disclaimer!!**  I did not write this, I have had it in my "toolbox" for a long time now.  Not sure where I originally found it, so no source link provided.  The guy who wrote it is listed in the boiler plate in the vbs file.

Glad it worked, keep a copy someplace safe, loke your SkyDrive, because I never could find that old link again.  :-)
