Asset Tag

There used to be a file on the Dell website called asset.com which allowed you to enter the asset tag id into bios. Any ideas where I can get this file ?

RE: Asset Tag

Ian,

Thank you for visiting DELLTalk.

You can download a Dell System Utility package that has the Asset.com file for setting the tag ID in BIOS. This file can be downloaded here.

Re: RE: Asset Tag

I'm looking for a utility that can retrieve the asset tag number from the BIOS and store it in a text file.  The ASSET.COM only works when booted from DOS.  We're hoping to use this during a user's login in order to capture the service tag for inventorying, connecting to the computer and user names at the same time.  Ideally, it should be able to redirect its output to a file.  Thanks.

Well, if you want the service tag, there is an app named SM_INFO.EXE that runs in Windows NT/2000/XP/2003 environments.

Re: RE: Asset Tag

Started using this resently to autocapture the service tags as we put new systems on our network via a MSIF driven unattended process.  Developed the script below to capture/isolate the service tag into a variable for later conditional processing, and thought others might find this useful.  Script assumes Dos 6.22.  Requires change.exe from/complements of MSIF process.

<< SERVCTAG.BAT >>

@echo off
::Gets Dell Service Tag into Variable
:: Blame Mont McCathern
:: 20031002
cd\
cd temp
asset |find "Service" >get.bat
change get.bat Service Set
type get.bat |find "Set" >settag.bat
call settag.bat
FOR %%a in (*.) do SET SERVCTAG=%%a
echo set SERVCTAG=%SERVCTAG% >>a:\temp\vars.bat
del ?et*.bat
del %SERVCTAG%
cls
exit

Re: RE: Asset Tag

Is there another source for the SM_INFO.EXE utility? The link mentioned does not seem to work.

Re: Asset Tag

The link in message 2 above takes you to the general download section. I don't see anything called system utilities in the download section. (When I use my system utilities and drivers CD, I can't find anything related to asset.com either.)

What am I missing?
