System Installation: Script to display serial number on remote machine

Author: Rod Trent
Platform: Windows NT, Windows 2000
Type: WSH, VBScript

DESCRIPTION: RemoteSN takes your input (computer name), connects to the remote WMI namespace, and then returns the computer’s serial number. You can get the local serial number by inputting “localhost” in the prompt.  To get a serial number from a computer, the computer must have WMI 1.5 installed and be compatible with SMBIOS version 2.1. Save this file as a .VBS and run with WScript.  If the computer name is entered incorrectly, or cannot be found on the network, an error message will indicate that the remote server does not exist.
