I have spent a lot of time looking at this and am really out of my league when it comes to finding the correct information.

Wondering if anyone knows of some WMI's that can help me find the information i am looking for?

We are trying to upgrade our San volume controller but in order to do that we need to check the compatibility on the Windows 2003/2008 servers and the problem is we have a lot of them. (5000+)

Does anyone know if there is any WMI or anything else that can help me pull the information needed so i can see if these servers are compatible for upgrade?

Information needed:
Adapter
Adapter model number
Adapter Driver
Multipath type and version number
If on a cluster

Try SCCM or similar software.

There are some free software that can do hardware inventory for you.

Try lansweeper and spice works. You need to have a similar software anyway if you are managing 5000 servers.

SCCM uses WMI and registry keys to pull the data so i would still need to come up with that info before i could get SCCM to grab that info.

We have tons of software but nothing that can pull that info or I would have used it by now. Thus the reason i hope it can be done via WMI
