    Logon script that displays computer info on desktop

    Hi

    I'm looking for a script that displays computer name, IP address and other such info.

    I was told there were loads of such scripts available for free online, is this true, if so could you point me in the right direction

    Thanks again

    what OS?

    ive seen BGInfo used quite a bit.

    if the new versions dont have a setting specifically for it, you can easily script it to update every login.

    I use BGInfo for most of my clients servers.....great little program.

    Or are you looking for a network/software inventory type of program? In which case

    another +1 for BGinfo. I use it on all my servers and deploy it via a simple batch file.

    If it's just a single server or a small handful of servers, it's as easy as just downloading that file and placing it in the all users startup folder.

    You looking for this information on just the servers, or on all computers on the domain..including workstations?

    Are you looking for this info on each system locally? Or centralized from one management console, like a "birds eye view" of your network info from one computer?

    It's actually 2 small batch files, one that loads all of your server/machine names into a variable string, and the next uses that variable string to push BGinfo to the defined machines. The scripts are sitting on a file server at my work, I'll pull them and post them up tomorrow so you can take a look, but you'll likely need to edit them to make them work in your enviornment.

    We also use a custom .ini file to trim the data the BGinfo puts on the desktop so we jsut get the basic host settings, Hostname, IP info, OS infor, etc.
