Computer/Server Serial Number from command line

Explaining a customer to find the serial number of a machine, can be a cumbersome task. At times it might even result in failing to get one, and requiring the IT person to visit the site. Here's the simple command to retrieve the Serial number and model name of a machine ( pc and server )

Type in command prompt

wmic bios get serialnumber 
wmic csproduct get name

Handy !!
