Script to get service tag from Dell device

I needed to get the service tag off my Dell laptop today, but i was in the middle of doing a million things, so didn’t fancy undocking it to look underneath.

So I put this quick vb script together to get the service tag.

If you’re not running any kind of NMS like SCCM, SCOM or SCE (which would gather the service tags for you) this may be useful to use if you need the tag from a remote host.
Enjoy!

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
& "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colSMBIOS = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
("Select * from Win32_SystemEnclosure")
For Each objSMBIOS in colSMBIOS
Wscript.Echo "Dell Service Tag: " & objSMBIOS.SerialNumber
Next
