Windows 7: Need command line tool to list Hardware

Need command line tool to list Hardware

I'm not a windows guy to say the least, been an Linux admin going on 6 years now, but new job gave me 20 windows 7 servers/workstations to maintain.

The issue I'm having is that when a client is logged on to one of my machines I can not login to check anything. If I attempt to login it boots the user off then I get yelled at


I use the following quite often to get minimal info about my systems: " tasklist /S system-name /U user-name /P password"

I'm wanting to pull up the device manager from a workstation while a user is logged in without booting them off.

I tried the following syntax: " control /devmgmt.msc /S system-name /U user-name /P password " but I get nothing.

Any help would be appreciated.

Check out this site, it has a package called sysinternals suite which includes a commandline tool called PS info which will give you all the hardware information you could want/need it also contains a number of other lovely tools, including PSexec, which allows remote execution of programs from the command line:

OK I will defiantly take a look. does it need to be installed on the server or just the workstation I'm accessing it from, or both? Thank you for your help
