    I've found this great little script that inventories the hardware of a pc and then exports the data into an excel spreadsheet. You can run it locally, or by adding the name of a remote PC, you can inventory a networked PC. It comes in 2 parts, the inventory part and the conversion part.


    My question is, how can I use the inventory part to do a whole room of computers in one hit rather then having to change the computer name in the script each time. I did think about using it as part of a login script, but this needs doing like yesterday and some of the PC's will not be used for a while.

    Here's the Link and attached is the script.

    Thanks for your help

    couldnt you add a loop into it that reads the machine names from either an LDAP query or at worst a text file (one machine per line), loads the names into an array and loops through them one by one?

    Have you tried Lansweeper?
    http://www.lansweeper.com

    Granted, it's not quite as simple as the script above, but have a look at the demo - it gives a fantastic amount of information and even works with SQL. [​IMG]

    It took me about 30 minutes to set up the first time. Since then, I have used it very successfully to manage all hardware and software inventorying for many clients.

    Thanks a lot for your help guys. I tried the Lansweeper and I've got to say it is the dogs dangly bits. Took a little bit of tweeking but just added the client .exe into the logon script and viola machines inventoryed as client logon.

    Thanks a lot Z. :biggrin
