  • System queri solution required.

    Hello everyone!
    See if you can help me out...
    My org has about 400 PC's running Microsoft Windows 2000 / XP in a 2003 Server domain.
    I'm looking for a solution that will enable me to remotely collect information about each computer in the domain, without me running around in the building looking for it.
    The information should include the following:
    - Computer Name (can be retrived from Active Directory)
    - Windows Version
    - Office installed: y/n (though i prefer the version of it)
    - Serial Number / Model Type (For all the IBMs)
    that's it...
    I have tried to google it but with no further success...

    Thank you all!

    PS: I have no knoledge in scripting, what so ever.

    OCS reports - free, excellent software
    WInventory - almost as good as OCS, free too

        Hello guys,
        thanks for all, but the software won't display any inofrmation about the IBM type/model & serial number.

        I also couldn't find any information aobut OCS Reports - a link would be very usefull.

        Thank you all!

            Hi again (and sorry for being such a pain in the a...)

            The OCS Inventory requires me to install a remote client on each computer, and I preffer a program that only interact with the exist network structure.

            I found this IBM tool called "System Information Gatherer" (or IBM isig).
            This is a locally installed software that provides all of the parameters and displays them on the users screen.
            The first problem with this one is that it won't interact with the network,
            The second problem is that this program also needs to be installed on each computer.

            is there any way to make the IBM thing to be installed completely only by running the .exe setup?

            I'm afraid not all users will know how to do it...
