Back in March I interviewed Baldwin Ng, a senior Product Manager for the Microsoft Solution Accelerators team. We talked about the Windows  Hardware Assessment Tool v1.0 back then. Well this past week, Baldwin and I sat down for another interview on the recently released version 2.0 of the tool. This interview is part of the Technet Radio series of interviews that myself and a few co-workers have been doing for the last year or so.

In this interview we discuss the new updates and features of the version 2.0 Windows Vista Hardware Assessment Tool. The tool is a fantastic  addition to the repertoire of tools that network admins and partners can use to scan existing networks and determine what hardware is in place and can be updated to Windows Vista. Some of the update to the tool include being able to scan up to 25,000 machines,the ability to do OU targeting for more precise scanning, import and scan a list of specific machines, and much more.

You can check out the interview on the Technet Radio site.

You can get the tool itself from the Windows Vista Hardware Assessment site.

Cheers!
