Get-QADComputer -searchroot 'domain.name' | Select Name,OSName, OSVersion,ParentContainer | Export-CSV C:\temp\Computers.csv -notype -unicode

There are other fields you can export, but this is a basic starting point.

You will need the Quest Active Roles addin for this to work correctly though.

Out of points please

Guys provided you a solution. Just import the output into Excel and use auto filter to filter OS out.

But you may wish to use other syntax to export only computers with particular OS type. Using PowerShell you can use a switch -LDAPFilter

Get-QADComputer -LDAPFilter "&(&(objectClass=Computer)(objectCategory=Computer)(operatingSystem="Windows XP Professional"))" | Select name | Export-CSV c:\WinXP.csv

And change operatingSystem value to another:
Windows Server 2008*
Windows 7*

Or use simply DS Tools

Dsquery * -filter "&(&(objectClass=Computer)(objectCategory=Computer)(operatingSystem="Windows Server 2008*"))" -attr name >>c:\2008.txt

Regards,
Krzysztof
