List of monitors connected to PC's in the K1 SMA

Hi guys

Need to get a report of all PC's and the monitors attached to each one?

I have tried generating a report and choosing monitors in the devices.

I am seeing "Default monitor" and "Generic PnP monitor" in the hardware list of some devices on the SMA with

no model, type, or some sort of additional info.

In some kaces it shows a single "Default monitor" and "Generic PnP monitor"  while the PC actually has

three monitors running on a dedicated graphics card.

In still yet other cases, it shows the model of a monitor.

Very inconsistent.

Any way I could get a more precise list of monitors?

indeed there is a way. Please be aware that these are "MY" abbrebviations and Quest does not support this in any way.

But you can use it as an example to build your own.

You need a CIR (as an example this one) 

ShellCommandTextReturn(cmd /c findstr "Monitor Name";"Serial Number";"Maximum Resolution" c:\programdata\quest\kace\ownscripts\monitor.txt)


Unzip “$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\monitorinfoview.zip” to “c:\programdata\quest\kace\ownscripts\miv\”.

Launch “c:\programdata\quest\kace\ownscripts\miv\MonitorInfoView.exe” with params “/HideInactiveMonitors 1 /stext C:\programdata\quest\kace\ownscripts\monitor.txt ”.

in the zip there is just the MonitorInfoView file from https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/monitor_info_view.html

  • Thanks Niko_k. Wil try this and see how it goes. Cheers - akmagnum 3 weeks ago
