I have read a few posts that mention Monitor information but none that I saw answered this question:

Can the Model and Serial number of a monitor connected to a computer with the SysAid agent running be collected as part of the inventory information for that computer?

We are running SysAid 8.5.

It may not be able to identify the serial number, but it may be able to find the monitor name/model from the registry based on it's connection.

Found it. Registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E96E-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. Below it are keys with value Driver Desc. But this may also include monitors previusly used or things like "Generic Non-PnP Monitor".

More info on registry keys in this area can be found here

DanoH5656 thanks for your reply.

I have had a looked at the registry keys you mentioned and can see some info about monitors, most of it is 'Generic Non-PnP Monitor' as you said.

Do you know if SysAid can look at this reg key and pick out all of the monitors that are not Generic Non-PnP Monitor, might be asking to much or can you customise what info the agent gathers about a computer?

Helpful weblink btw.

Unfortunately I haven't the slightest. In VBA you could write a conditional statement but this is more than a bit removed from that. Maybe one of the Ilient reps can chime in.

I would say your best bet is to have more info instead of less. If you can, see if you can setup a playground server/database and see what the output looks like. If it's not overwhelming with "Generic blah blah blah", just keep it.

How many assets are you looking to do this for?

I will play around with it and see if I can get any useful info.

Thanks for your reply. If I discover anything useful I will update this post.

Hello all dear,
It's first time I'm using Sysaid forum. But maybe you can help me.

Mr(s?). Colemberg is explainig us how to use WMI-Provider, written by Roger Zander to Get Monitor/Display Information i.e Model and Serial Number in SCCM
https://blog.colemberg.ch/2011/09/collect-the-monitor-serial-numbers-for-your-cmdb-part1/

My question is, if I install https://sourceforge.net/projects/wmimonitor/files/wmimonitor/V1.0.0.3/ in all PC's in my infrastructure, is there any chance to get the new WMI Class "Win32_MonitorDetail" in SysAid And to have informations it contains such as Model and Serial Number of Monitor/Display in SysAid?

Thank you for any help

Best and kind regards.
