Help....How to create an agentless report for virtual/physical servers

Created: 19 Feb 2013 • Updated: 19 Feb 2013 | 1 comment

Hi, I've been tasked with creating a report to differentiate between virtual and physical servers in our enviorment, but the issue is I have do to it agentless due to some of our data centers do not allow us to load the agent. I have full domain rights with WMI and other protocols if needed but I'm stumped. If anyone can shed some light on this you could possibly make my week!

Thanks.

There are many ways you could do this.  A common one is a WMI call against model in Win32_ComputerSystem, since it would either say something like 'PowerEdge 1234' or 'VMware Virtual Machine'.
