There is a software utility available for download called "Look@LAN". It's a pretty robust IP scanner. One of its functions is checking the OS of other systems in the subnet. Try it.

Also, from the command prompt of any system on the subnet, you can type the command:

systeminfo /s [ip] /u [user] /p [password]

Change [ip] to the address of the machine you want to query.

Make [user] the username of a valid user on the machine, or use the format "domain\user" for a user of a domain.

Make [password] the password of the user specified above.

This will return the entire System Info for each PC scanned, including the OS version.

The only downside to this is that you have to scan each machine one at a time. But if your throw this into a batch file that is set to scann all the addressed, the result will be a file you can export and do with as you please.

For more usage info, type "systeminfo /?" at the command prompt.

Systeminfo only works for one computer at a time I need a way to do this for a hundreds of computers. The Look@LAN does not show Service Pack level it only shows OS installed.

The latest version of MSBA (Microsoft Security Baseline Analyzer) and its free from Microsoft.

Do a search at their site for it.

It works pretty good. Its a good tool to have anyway for a Windows network as it tells you how outdated your are patch-wise and any common security holes that exist.

The Microsoft Inventory tool will do it:

Also, NEWT Pro has a free 10 machine demo that will do it.
