MAPS from Microsoft is the best way to record all such info in a database for you, plus a ncie report and excel spreadsheet.
In order to produce the inventory it scans the network and identifies SQL Server installs, versions, OS details, disk space etc etc.
Have you got a link for that?
MAPS full name is "Microsoft assessment and planning toolkit",
You can download it from "http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=158988".
it will also install sql server express as a repository.
I just did a quick glance at the Ref URL above. Very cool... thanks for posting the link, Stanley.
