Hello Experts,

I have a client who is requesting a complete inventory of all their Hardware and VMs running on their organization. Unfortunately, they do not have SCCM in place, therefore our only option so far is to get a MS tool or script that we can run on our domain to pull out all information regarding servers, the OS, and type of server[either physical or virtual]

Client has a mixed of Windows servers [2008/2003/2012] and VMware virtual infrastructure.

Can anybody provide a Power-Shell script, MS/VMware tool, that can be used to pull out all this information? We need to export all that info to a spreadsheet

Thanks in advance

You can use MS Free Software

Microsoft Assessment and Planning Toolkit

Has very good information about software, hardware and if y ou want to virtualize servers or update windows OS, office and so, you can get great reports, but could be difficult to get the full information for all your inventory.

*******************

Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager is the best for this, but you need a license, a server and install a agent in each server, but it's a great software, with a lot of funtions. Maybe you will need help for a Certified Professional o Microsoft Partner to install the software.

Another great option with many tools to get the inventory for domain and no domain computers and server is LAN Sweeper, you can use it free trial for 30 days, but should be enought.
