Get the MAC address of remote desktop or server in Windows

Ever wonder how to remotely get a mac address of a remote Windows machine without logging in.

1. Start command prompt with an account that has admin rights on the remote machine
2. type getmac /S

Here is an example:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>getmac /S
