Serial Number Detection

Does anyone know where I could get a DOS utility that will tell me the serial number of a ProLiant Server?

Re: Serial Number Detection

I know you asked for DOS, but just in case ... this might work (Windows 2000 or NT4 with WMI installed)

try this VB Script

On Error Resume Next
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_BIOS",,48)
For Each objItem in colItems

Wscript.Echo "Manufacturer: " & objItem.Manufacturer
Wscript.Echo "SerialNumber: " & objItem.SerialNumber

I have attached this file so that you can see the text formatting as it should be, you can just change the file extention to vbs. You can also run this from a command prompt by typing in cscript.exe
