    I want to get a listing of the system BIOS version of all the servers in my domain that are Proliant DL380's and running Windows 2000 server.

    Here is a vbs script you can use. It works on most but not all. This was original listed by The Supply Guy.
    <span style="font-weight: bold">Command Line</span>
    wscript.exe "\\servername\Scripts\HyenaTools\Utilities\BIOSSN. vbs" //NoLogo %E%

    <span style="font-weight: bold">please note I run my tools from a share point</span>

    <span style="font-weight: bold">save the following as a vbs file</span>
    Option Explicit

    Dim WshShell, objArgs, objTargetComp 'as String
    Dim BiosSet, System, Bios_serial, strResponseText

    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

    Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments ' create object with collection

    objTargetComp = objArgs(0) 'assign the passed computer name to a variable

    Set BiosSet = GetObject("Winmgmts://" & objTargetComp).InstancesOf ("Win32_BIOS")
    for each System In BiosSet
    Bios_serial = System.SerialNumber

    strResponseText = "BIOS SN: " & Bios_serial

    WshShell.Popup strResponseText, 0,"Serial Number (from BIOS)"

    This should help you get a start.

      You can also perform this action in Hyena or Exporter Pro by using WMI, which is what this script does. You might have to create your own WMI query, as I don't know if you include a default WMI query for this class, but its easy to setup.

      If you want to go that route, let us know and we'll tell you the steps.
