    I've got Active Direcory Users and Computers opened right now.

    then I"ve got our businessname.local open.

    then "computers" opened.

    I can click properties on all these computers and click on "manage".

    Is there anyway I can find out how much RAM these all have without walking
    around to them all?

    Any network program that would ask each computer what it's got?

    Bryce.

    I'm downloading it now. Can I test it before I have the company pay for it?

  4. Want something quick and no frills....

    PSInfo
    http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/psinfo.shtml

    1. Create a folder called PSInfo in the root directory of the server
    2. Download and copy the contents of the .zip file to PSinfo
    3. Open a command prompt and navigate to c:\psInfo
    4. Type: psinfo \\* >allinfo.txt
    5. Open the resultant "allinfo.txt" file in Notepad.

    Info for all domain workstations will be gathered.

    NOTE: Want just the memory info gathered for all machines...
    Type: psinfo \\* physical >allinfo.txt
