Create SCOM2012 Groups by OS versions.
Posted on 2014-08-16
In SCOM 2012, I do not see any way to create computer groups based on OS version.
The work around that I might think of is creating attributes then create groups based on those attributes.
SO I went ahead and created an attribute and selected WMI query as Discovery type, then typed the following query :
select * from Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Version like “6.3%” AND ProductType=”3″
Since I have windows server 2012 R2 standard edition.
in Property name I just typed "handle", I am not sure if that's important.
In WMI namespace I typed: root\cimv2
After creating the attribute, then I created a group, I select windows computer_extended as class, and under Property drop down arrow I selected the name of the attribute I previously created, under operator I select greater than or equal to and under value I typed 1
However when I try to view members of the group, it shows no members there
I have also tried under operator I selected Matches Wildcard and under value I typed ?
Any help will be very much appreciated.
