Hi All,

My company is in the process of creating an accurate inventory of all computers and printers located in a number of disconnected environments.

I have been able to use the Active Directory PowerShell snapin to locate the Windows domain computers and printers, and export them to CSV.

There are additional devices that run Windows such as Oscilloscopes and other test equipment.  These devices are not domain members.

Is it possible to use PowerShell to pull back information about these devices since they run Windows?

Thanks.

OK.  Basically, I had a similar script already.  So the answer is, the other devices that run windows will be seen just like any other Windows machine.

Provided me with additional reinforcement of the idea I already had.  Thanks for your input.
