View Server or PC information for local or remote machine

Ever need to quickly get detailed information about your local Windows PC or Windows Server.  The systeminfo command to the rescue.  With this command you can retrieve local or remote system info in just seconds either manually or programmatically.

Here are the basics:
systeminfo /s [remote server name]

This info can be extremely helpful when needing to view or send detailed info to a tech support person.  I have also used it built into a slick tool that pulls down network pc/server details into central database application.

Below is a TechNet article with more details if you need them.
