Not exactly a post in line with the usual contents of this blog. However, Leonard Nimoy died today. He was said to be a good man and many people have feelings of knowing him. For many he sparked imagination with the desires for the unknown; the desire to join Star Fleet and explore the unknown.
Towards the end he tweeted something profound:
“A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP”
Thank you for the memories Mr. Nimoy.
The world seems sadder….

I had to update some drivers and did a quick check of the server database and found it was wrong. I remembered there were a couple server changes before this install and was not sure the correct server was listed.
I needed the serial number of to verify I was updating the right information in the database.
Powershell can do this. Note: this is a 2012 install on new hardware. Older models might not work.
From Powershell; simply enter;
gwmi win32_bios | fl SerialNumber
