  • Use WMI to query the servers with Win32_Product class.

  • this command only runs on local machine

    you cannot query remote computers.

  • Hi,

    I am Chetan Savade from Symantec Technical Support Team.

    Do you have an access to Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager (SEPM) console?

    If yes, can pull out Computer Status report. This report will display information about the operational status of the computers in your network, such as which computers have security features turned off. These reports include information about versions, the clients that have not checked in to the server, client inventory, and online status.

    Reference guide: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH95538

    Best Regards,

    Chetan

    No, that is incorrect. If PS-Remoting is enabled. The WMI query works. 

    Create a GPO for your domain for PS Remoting. Check the link Enable Powershell Remoting via Group Policy

    WMI does not require PS remoting.  It works even if there is no PS installed.

    At a CMD prompt: WMIC /node:compname BIOS

  • this WMI command works on 2008 servers, not in 2003 server.

  • this WMI command works on 2008 servers, not in 2003 server.

    That command works on ALL Windows servers and has since Windows 2000.  It is a fundamental part of Microsoft Windows NT systems.  It has been available since Windows 98

    See WMI here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Management_Instrumentation

    Knowledge of WMI is a prerequisite for an Administrator or technician on all Windows systems. WMI is used internally throughout all Windows systems.  The specification for WMI is CIM from the DMTF which is an industry wide standard.  All professional operating systems either have CIM or can install it.  That includes nearly all flavors of Unix including the Mac.

  • WMI objects for Windows Installer are not installed on Server 2003 by default.

    Use this PowerShell script instead (it is much faster, and detects products not installed by Windows Installer also):
