I need to know how many Windows 2000 servers we have in our domain.  Is there a query within AD or another Free tool I can use to scan my network ( perhaps SCCM ) that will show me exactly how many Windows 2000 servers I have?

Thanks in Advance

If you have less that 100, the free version of Manage Engine's tool would work :

For Builtin tooling to get a quick and dirty answer, you could use the following command line tool from the support tools:
  repadmin /showattr yourdomaincontrollernamehere ncobj:domain: /filter:"(&(objectcategory=computer)(operatingsystem=Windows Server 2000))" /subtree /atts:samaccountname,operatingSystem,operatingSystemVersion,operatingSystemServicePack

If you have 2008 R2 ADC \ member server in domain, then you can run below PowerShell command one by one to find out windows 2000 computers in AD
Openup powershell with elevated command prompt
Import-module activedirectory
Get-ADComputer -Filter * | Export-Csv <csv path>
The above command will give you required output in csv format
You can find out OS version there

Alternatively you can use freeware tool called AD Tidy from below site
http://www.cjwdev.co.uk/Software.html

It is freeware and give you detailed report about computers in network , has nice GUI and can export output to excel

You can do this using Powershell very easy. Use the below syntax...

Import-module activedirectory
Get-ADComputer -Filter * -Properties * | ? {$_.OperatingSystem -like "*2000*"} | select Name, OperatingSystem, OperatingSystemServicePack

Open in new window

If you are using SCCM in your environment than you most definitely can run an SCCM report to query server OS types probably using a WMI filter or SQL query
