Utility Attached

The attached utility will retrieve system hardware WMI / DMI information, such as baseboard (motherboard) information and a list of enabled hardware devices.

This utility is useful in building WMI queries or scripts to uniquely identify hardware on a network, such as for SCCM task deployment or driver updates.

Instructions

  • Logon to the system as an Administrator.
  • Extract the package to a folder.
  • Right-hand click on detect.bat and run it as an Administrator.
