you can add WMI query as Item type and put there WMI query for windows 2016 server

select * from Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Version like "10.0%" AND ProductType="3"

Open in new window

yes i know that but i would like to do it without WMI to put all setting in a single GPO

I need to target Windows 2016 - 2012 -2008

Can we do this ?

For every registry item preference itm, there will be one WMI query

up to 2012 add from gui, for 2016 server use WMI filter
