Hi guys,
Im trying to identify all machines that have Windows 2003 Server Standard and Windows 2003 Server Enterprise.
When using dsquery, i have tried the attributes:
operatingSystemVersion
which returns 5.2 (3790) (for both Standard and Enterprise)
and
operatingSystem
which returns Windows Server 2003 (for both again)
Is there an attribute that will clearly identify the 2 different versions?
Thanks guys.

You can get this pretty easy with powershell and wmi

gwmi -computer COMPUTERNAME -class Win32_Operatingsystem | ft Name, ProductType, Caption

The caption should give you enterprise and also the producttype should be 4

and if you have the quest AD cmdlets you could loop through them

$servers = @()
$comps = get-qadcomputer -searchbase "OU=Servers,DC=Domain,DC=Local"
Foreach($comp in $comps){
$OS = gwmi -computer COMPUTERNAME -class Win32_Operatingsystem
$servers += $($OS.Name),$($OS.ProductType),$($OS.Caption)"
}
$out | out-file c:\servers.txt

Hi KenMcF,

The command:

gwmi -computer COMPUTERNAME -class Win32_Operatingsystem | ft Name, ProductType, Caption

Is this a downloadable utility?
