Create active directory information with a script

Hi All,

I wonder if you guys can help me here, I have been asked to create an "asset register" to show information like Computer Type/Name, spec, amount of memory, OS, processor, Serial Number, Description, ect, you get the idea, I am totally hopeless with scripting and VB but seem to remember somebody achieving something like this using a script to get the info from Active Directory, can this be done if so can you help, if not I am barking up the wrong tree...

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Darren

You can get some of that info from AD (name, OS version, service pack).  If you want I can show you that (powershell or adfind).

Memory/Serial Number/processor and hardware related items are not stored as AD attributes.  There might be scripts out there that can help with that but they are not pulling that info from AD.

Thanks

I had a spreadsheet I wrote once which scanned AD for computers that weren't already listed, then used WMI I think it was to get more information from the PC's that were on.

I can't find it at the moment and don't have time to re-write the functionality so will see if anyone else can get you what you need.  If/when I find it will post here.
