Server/PC management package RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I hope it is OK to ask this forum this question.

    I am looking for a software package(open soure preferred) that I can inventory my PCs/Servers that is robust.  The big item is to log the servers drivers/firmware updates and what ever I need to review in the future.

    Does anyone have any suggestions that they use and like.

    Thanks,  Tom...

  • Tom,

    Most of this information can be obtained through WMI and SNMP. Most Managed Services providers have software that will grab all of this information.

    If you have a spare server that you can install some software on, please check out SpiceWorks. I think this will accomplish what you're looking for.
