Window 10 pc's divided in groups per version

Hi, will try briefly explain the problem: hundreds of Windows 10 pc’s, versions: 1511, 1607, 1703, 1709 in WSUS environment (Win2012R2).
Is it any way to have them divided in groups? Can this be done in WSUS?
Is it any scanning software that can help to identify: IP, OS/ver of pc’s in “delegated” OU of an enterprise?
Thank U.

if you have a list of IP addresses you can use a batch file to gather information using "systeminfo /s IP.ADDRESS" but that may be more information that you want. As far as putting them into groups--maybe is you tell us why (for updating windows differently for each?) then maybe we can give you better guidance.

Very easy... Set WSUS to place computers based on GPO, not manually

Then do your WSUS setting via GPO Registry Preferences and use WMI Query Item Level Targeting to create correct Targeting Group registry value

For example:
1703
Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Version like “10.0.15063” AND ProductType=”1″

Open in new window

After scanning the network we're able to identify and divide W10 pc's in groups per OS Release Version, manually create groups in WSUS ...

Manually, hmmm okay. Any reason why you do not do it automatically?
