GPO WMI Filters for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

    Frage

  • I'm looking to create some new GPO WMI filters to manage windows 8 computers in our domain. I see that 8.1 uses is v6.3 as opposed to v6.2 that 8.0 was. I am planning to create these filters for these types of workstations, please let me know if these seem correct:

    WMI Filter to target: Windows 8.0 and Windows 8.1 Workstations

    Query Namespace: root\CIMv2

    Query: select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where (Version like "6.2%" or Version like "6.3%") and ProductType = "1"


    WMI Filter to target: Windows 7, Windows 8.0 and Windows 8.1 Workstations

    Query Namespace: root\CIMv2

    Query: select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where (Version like "6.1%" or Version like "6.2%" or Version like "6.3%") and ProductType = "1"

  • Yes.

    NO THEY ARE NOT EVIL, if you know what you are doing: Good or bad GPOs?
    And if IT bothers me - coke bottle design refreshment :))

  • For the Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 you can simply use (also catches Vista):

    select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Version like "6.%" and ProductType="1"

    See: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj717288.aspx

  • I use the following in our environment and find it works well:

    WMI Filter to target: Windows 7 & Windows 8.1

    Query Namespace: root\CIMv2

    Query: Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE Caption like "Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise%" OR Caption like "Microsoft Windows 8.1 Enterprise%"

    Just another option :)
