    When using RDP can I tell if Remote is running as a VM


    Hi there -- especially Geeks !!

    Is there an easy way to check if I RDP to a remote computer whether it's running as a VM or a "Real" machine.

    Thanks

    Cheers

    If remote is logged on with MS account, go to devices in MS account and it tells you if it is a virtual machine.

    Powershell

    Returns



    Domain : WORKGROUP
    Manufacturer : LENOVO
    Model : 80EC
    Name : DESKTOP-1903
    PrimaryOwnerName : Windows User
    TotalPhysicalMemory : 11738402816

    The "Manufacturer" will be "Microsoft Corporation" and the "Model" will be "Virtual Machine" if a VM.


    Code:
    gwmi -q "select * from win32_computersystem"
