HP / compaq servers generally have the survey / hpdiags utility installed in %system drive%\hp\hpdiags folder. This utility generates a detailed system information file and can be very useful for many diagnostic and inventory purposes.
1. Run the hpdiags.exe utility and it would generate a survey%Date%%Time%.xml file. (This survey file can be quite cryptic and I generally use the following commands to make it a readable html file.)
2. Copy the surveyxxxx.xml file and survey.xsl file to your computer.
3. Download msxsl.exe from microsoft.com
4. Run the command msxsl.exe <input_file.xml> survey.xsl -o <outpul_file.html>at the command prompt. Give fully qualified path names wherever necessary.
