To get a serial number remotely

To get a serial number remotely for any server/desktop/laptop

Posted on Updated on


Run this command:

wmic /node:[remote computer name] bios get serialnumber

Or, if you would like to output to a text file:

set myfile = [The full UNC path with filename e.g. \\server\share\filename.txt]

wmic /append:%myfile% /node:[remote computer name] bios get serialnumber

Just open the shell with Admin rights, and type:

Get-WmiObject -ComputerName [remote computer name] -Class Win32_BIOS

or the short version:

gwmi -comp [remote computer name] -cl win32_bios

wmic bios get name,serialnumber,version This will tells you the name if your BIOS, current version and it’s serial number if there is any.
