Whats the best way to query for a Toughbook from MDT/SCCM?

By | February 17, 2015

The old way:

SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystem WHERE Model LIKE “CF-53J%”

This query no longer works for Toughbook systems manufactured after 2014.  This field is now populated with a generic value for the Toughbook revision (CF52-2 instead of CF-53JVUZK1M).


The best way:

SELECT * FROM Win32_BaseBoard WHERE Product LIKE “CF53-2%”


If you prefer to still query against the full model:

SELECT * FROM MS_SystemInformation WHERE SystemSKU LIKE “CF-53J%”


Here are some WMIC commands that can pull these values quickly:

wmic baseboard get product

wmic computersystem get model

wmic /NAMESPACE:\\root\WMI PATH MS_SystemInformation get SystemSKU

    I’ve found that several of our Toughbooks don’t have win32_baseboard – Model populated. Instead I’ve been able to query for Product almost consistently.
