j.kane, it's not really a programming question. It would be more suited to superuser, so I'm nudging it across to there. –  paxdiablo Nov 21 '09 at 14:53

If you want to gather inventory/audit information programmatically, then use WMI.

WMI has a good .NET interface that is readibly available from within Visual Studio 2008 as a collection of library classes. PowerShell also exposes this interface for scripting.

You can try Spiceworks, it is free software with promo, also I’ve heard that the network inventory software by Clearapps is wide spread among sysadmins. It’s not free, but has more wide functionality. Or you can just google search and find everything here:
