Is there a command like the following:
wmic /node:"COMPUTERNAME" bios get serialnumber
But by MAC address instead of computer name?
A solution to that would be appreciated, although if you have suggestions for the bigger problem overall it would be greatly appreciated. I'm not very experienced at this.
The problem we're trying to solve is that we have computers with no OS on them, so when we connect them to ghost console by PXE we only see them by mac address.
We have an Excel sheet with serial numbers and our local identifiers to be used as the computer name (we don't have the mac addresses) so I want to get the serial number from X MAC address and then automatically assign the computer name to our sysprep (or give it a random name and then change it after install).
So if you have a better way to do this, and or suggestions to improve it please share. I'm restricted in what software I can use. We have Windows Server 2003 and the Norton Ghost suite. Were installing Windows XP images with Sysprep if that helps also.
