Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Your missing the point though, I've asked for a way to acheive this in ADUC for a reason.
 I appreciate the replies but I need to get this info out of ADUC.

Active Directory does not track which user have which computer.
u can, however, get which user is currently logged on which computer.
is that what u want?

You can use an LDAP query in ADUC (let us know if you need information on how that is done).   Here are some queries

So for example for 7

(&(objectCategory=computer)(operatingSystem=Windows 7*))

Thanks

No, I want a list of which computers are running XP (regardless of service pack level), and which are running Windows 7 (regardless of version).

that is what i've posted.
those 2 lines of code, creating 2 reports (1 for each OS version), listing all computer info.
if u want LDAP query then u can use:
(&(objectCategory=computer)((operatingSystem=Windows 7*)|(operatingSystem=Windows XP*)))
