How to retrieve server information?

How do you get information (HW/SW) in a server? Have you ever wanted to get that information? Ok. You might say you can use, “dxdiag” in command prompt and it will give you ample of information. Of course you can use “dxdiag” but I’m going to present you a different way of getting that information.


Type "dxdiag" in command prompt and you get this screen.


I like to use "systeminfo" command as it much flexible when retrieving information.

Type "systeminfo" in command prompt.

You also can use the command with few useful switches.

You can get these information into a text file.

C:\>systeminfo >> C:\>ServerInfo.txt
