Finding a lost PC
Posted on 2011-09-25
I have a situation here. Months ago I join this It firm, and I took over the inventory of this company. They do not have a proper system or a process to keep track of the inventory. They keep track of the asset by using excel worksheet.
There was this set of PC and monitor arrived some months ago for an existing user before I joined. I created a database to update the inventory list based on the delivery order as the delivery order had the PC and monitor serial number. But now one of my colleague had notice that the user is still using the old PC not the newer PC and monitor that they had bought for her.
My superior wants me to locate where have the engineers deployed the new PC to. There are over 500 user in my company. And my superior does not want to alarm the other team such as the network security team. I wanted to use software such as spicework to scan the whole domain. but i do not have the permission to use it.
So i was thinking of using wmic to remotely search for each user. But I could do not have access. Is there a way to work around the access denied?
Thanks for any advice.
