Get list of Computers over 5 years old

Recommended Posts

Is there any way to generate a report of all computers that are over five years old? At the very least it seems Labtech should know when the computers are added, though it doesn't look like any of the existing templates can provide what I'm looking for. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

This response is a bit late, but better late than never.

Basically no. There isn't any standard way to get the age of a computer. However, you *can* get

- Date Automate agent was installed

- Date windows was installed

- some other dates, all of which have problems in using them.

If you are lucky enough to have all systems from the same manufacturer, when you may be able to pull a motherboard date. 

If you are happy with one of the above dates then by far the easiest way to work out what you have is via dataviews. You can export a view to excel and work from that, which would be my preference.

What we use to monitor this, is to use the BIOS date.

When BIOS updates are not done on workstations, than this is at the best way to do this.
