    OCS Inventory

    OCS Inventory is a GPL Hardware and Software Inventory system for Windows networks.

    http://ocsinventory.sourceforge.net

    For larger networks (50+ machines) I'd recommend you use Postgres or MySQL instead of the default Access database.

    Does ocs inventory get the model number of monitors as well? I want to find somethin (if possible) that will scan our network returning the serial numbers of pc's, laptops and monitors along with the computer name and maybe the computer name the monitor is attached to.

    At present our inventory is handled in access but it's very time consuming to keep up to date. We need to be able to query the database for equipment when a lease is up. E.g. Search for an order number.

    Many thanks

    I use OCS-NG here and if the monitor reports its serial/model to Windows then OCS-NG will get it from it. This is an example line for the monitor from one of my machines:

    Hewlett Packard HP L1740 HWP.2648.01010101 (51/2006) RGB color CND65109P6

    It gets any info that is available to it. So, if the machine has the serial number in its BIOS like it should, OCS-NG will grab it for you. However, some manufacturers are slackers in this area and don't put serials in the BIOS.

    You can add custom fields to the system, via 'Administrative Data'. So, you could add an 'Order Number' item and enter that data. Then you can search based on pretty much any of the fields in the system ranging from a piece of software installed to the amount of free space left or the serial number etc...

    Also note that since the original post, the software has moved on and the new versions are now at http://www.ocsinventory-ng.org/en/ and there is now an easy to use 'Windows' version which you can install which uses XAMPP.
