I'm in a situation where I need to combine 2 WMI filters and need some help.

Funtional level 2003 domain with mixed client environment (Windows XP and 7) where we used a WMI filter to determine which GPO needs to be applied on which OS.

The filter used for this:
Select Version, ProductType FROM Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Version >= "6.1" AND ProductType ="1"

Now one of our GPO is for folder redirection of the My Documents folder where at one of our sites these folders are split over 2 file servers (because of workload on the servers). the deviation is done by username so all users with a username from A to K are on server1 and from L to Z on server 2.

First I would need a WMI filter that can query if the username is starting with A to K or L to Z and then combine it with the above query to target the correct OS.

Please help.

Special thanks,

David Johnson, CD
