How to find a serial number of a machine using WMI

WMI Query

WMI Query

As I keep forgetting this myself, this is how to get a serial number from a desktop or laptop using WMI – saves you from bending down and trying to fumble to find it under the desk.

On a local machine

Open a command prompt as an administrator and type the following:

wmic bios get serialnumber

On a remote machine

Open a command prompt as an administrator and type the following:

wmic /NODE: “computername/IP” bios get serialnumber
