Need to search network for serial number and return PC name

techguy20
I am looking for a tool where I can input a serial number, have it search the network for that serial number, and if found, have it return the computer name of that device. Not sure if something like this exists, but it would be very helpful. Thanks in advance for any assistance!

    Apps like Symantec Altiris inventory solution can read WMIC data, including the serial number, IF it is stored in BIOS.

    I don't recommend trying to create your own solution, but below is the code:

    msdn DOT microsoft DOT com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa390422%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

    replace DOT with .
