Help me create my System inventory....

By bijoy.y ·
Hi all,
I've seen that windowsXP's Help&Support gives us plenty of info regarding ur system, it also provides u with the option of viewing the details of another system, but... it provides us with our own system details. Could there be another means through which we administrators could execute getting details of another system without interfering with the work of the user through the Domain Server by creating a batch file or something which could run as soon as the User logs on onto his system.. Anyone having ideas please help

What kind of details are you looking for? You should be able to run a VBScript from one of your central servers, maybe running under the credentials of a domain admin that stores the info centrally. Or you could create a similar vbscript and have it run as a logon script.

As for me, my network consists of over 250 machines and I really want to know all the details related to the physical devices within it like the HDD volume; Mem; CPU Speed; Printers attatched to it etc.in the network and as U said I'wd like 2 know how to use a VBScript through my server in detail if u have an Idea about it. I'wd really like 2 know whether we can create a batch file and execute it through the Domain server. I'wd mostly like 2 use the resources that Windows provides like I said earlier the "Help&Support" section... check it out and tell me you can help me with a script coz getting the inventory of over 250 machines is no kidding boy!!!

if you have the $$ Microsoft has MOM 2005 or Systems Management Service.

Tells you everything you want to know... hardware and software on your network.

Buddy, my company isn't going 2 pay me a penny for any third-party software, which means I'm really tight with my pocket. You might feel I'm too wierd but, I'wd really like to Explore the resources within Windows.

Hey,

I don't know about Windows, but IBM had a product called IDD (Intelligent Device Discovery). You'll need Linux to run it. If you have a lot of inventory to gather, you may want to look in to that. Its been a while since I've heard about the product though.

You could do a batch file in netlogon something like:
(Its simple but you could spruce it up some)
net use x: \\aserver\ashare
systeminfo > x:\%COMPUTERNAME%.txt

I believe you could help me out.. if you really describe in detail your command-line. I didn't really get it. Tell me, how and where do I use it??? How do I create the batch file as you say? Have some leads.. coz I'm going crazy at the thought of getting system details manually for over 250 machines.

To see what info you would get, open a command prompt and type systeminfo > info.txt. This will give you info about your local pc, everything from network information and OS version to amount of memory and installed updates and put it in a file called info.txt .If this is the info u are looking for then a cheap way to get that info from all pc's would be to create a simple little batch file and put it in netlogon so when users login to a pc
it will run and you get this info.In my simple lil batch file (and it is simple just an example) I just mapped a drive to a server share
( net use x: )
did a systeminfo and sent the output to a file named
%computername%.txt on a server share.
( systeminfo > x:\%COMPUTERNAME%.txt )
I had the files go to a share so that they are all in one place for easy access.
%computername% means windows will name the file using each computers unique name, for example "computer1.txt" or "computer254.txt"
Its not fancy but it could work for ya in theory.Hope this helps!
