I need a reliable NT hardware/software d

By hasepulveda ·
I am working in an environment of mostly NT (about 95%) computers (Mostly HP Vectras..different models) and I'm looking for a diagnostic Utility that will help me troubleshoot software/hardware problems.
Any ideas? please send info about the utility and how to get it.

I need a reliable NT hardware/software d

There are few good utilities out there, but I am prefer HP OpenView for NT. However, SMS is also good, SMS is very nice for Miscosft networks (i.e if you have Macs or UNIX boxes you are going to miss some clients.)Take your pick...

*Note: SMS will be considerably cheaper for very large enterprise 1000 clients and up...

Both utilities can be bought from You reseller (CDW, PC Mall, local guys).

What specific hardware/software problems are you trying to troubleshoot, and do you want to do it locally or over the network. SMS is nice but pricey. If all your PC's are NT machines, the built-in tools may be all you need. For example, the WindowsNT Diagnostics can connect to any NT computer on your network (use "File" "Select Computer"). The same goes for Performance Monitor, if you need to check on CPU usage or disk capacity (make sure you run "diskperf -y" on all the client machines to enable disk support).
If you have a dead machine, you might try the Hardware Qualifier Utility on the NT 4.0 CD (it's in \support\hqtool).
These tools take some learning, but they have the advantage that they're free.

I prefer to use diskeeper for my hardware. McAfee has a package Utilities that will check your software so you may want to look at it. Good Luck
