SCCM: Find client BIOS information

With some regularity, I find myself needing to fetch information from the BIOS of a client computer, preferably without having to go onsite to do so. This may be because I need to know what BIOS version the client is running, the serial number of the computer, or when it was manufactured. If you’re running SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager), this is relatively easily done. Here’s how:

  1. Open SCCM and go to Devices
  2. Search for the client computer
  3. Right-Click the computer, click Start, then Resource Explorer
  4. Go to Hardware, then scroll down to PC BIOS

From here you can read the BIOS version, manufacturer, serial number, and date of manufacture:
