Yesterday Baldwin Ng delivered a nice webcast on the Windows Vista Hardware Assessment v2.0 release. This webcast is now available for on demand viewing so you can watch it with the Live Meeting wrapper. Or download it and watch/listen later at your leisure.
Baldwin did a real good job of describing the toolset, reporting, various network and security scenarios and future plans. If you are interested in doing an inventory of your current environment without having to install a more complicated product like SMS, then you should check out this webcast.
If for some reason the webcast link above doesn't work, you can always go to http://www.microsoft.com/events/webcasts/ondemand.mspx. Since the webcasts are listed in date order there, you'll see this close to the top of the list since it was delivered yesterday. Or, you can go to http://msevents.microsoft.com/cui/AdvancedSearch.aspx and plug in the event ID which in this case is 1032343265.Microsoft, Windows Vista, Windows Vista Hardware Assessment, Webcast, Webcasts
