There are many great tools to exports VM info to excel.

I need a similar tool(s) for physical servers.

The tool helps me to export hardware and application info from physical servers during site survey.

Good to include storage tools  (if applicable)

You could modify this script that we used to use to gather information. It was originally executed as part of the log on script.

echo %DATE% > p:\security\pcinfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
echo. >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt 
ipconfig /all >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
echo. >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
set >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
echo. >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
netstat >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
echo. >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
::echo "windows update log (c:\winnt\windowsupdate.log)" >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
::echo. >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
::p:\security\pcinfo\tail c:\winnt\windowsupdate.log >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
::if NOT exist c:\winnt\windowsupdate.log echo "windows update log (c:\winnt\windowsupdate.log) NOT found" >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt


if exist c:\windows dir c:\windows\$NT* /A:H /O:D > c:\updatelog.txt
if exist c:\winnt dir c:\winnt\$NT* /A:H /O:D >> c:\updatelog.txt
echo. >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
echo Latest Updates >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
echo. >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
p:\security\pcinfo\tail c:\updatelog.txt >> p:\security\PCInfo\%USERname%+%time%.txt
