Just had a question come up in the Server Team about how to find out if a server is a virtual machines (Vmware) or a physical server .e.g Compaq Proliant?
To check a remote server for just that information use the following:-
systeminfo /s | findstr /i servername system
The output will be similar to this:-
System Manufacturer: VMware, Inc.
System Model: VMware Virtual Platform
Thanks to Matthew ‘Evil Knievel‘ James for this hint!
To find out all system information on a remote server:-
systeminfo /s servername
Thanks to James ‘The Hobbit’ Holme for this hint!
These commands use the built in Windows System Information tool.
