      What are people using to identify installed instances of Windows Server 2003, 2000 and XP in their environments?



      The default application pool does not contain these?



      Any suggestions as I am trying to knock together a report for Friday!!!

          You may want to look here:


          REPORTS -> Standard Reports -> Inventory -> Operating System Symmary.


          A device's inventory reports the OS in this section:

          COMPUTER -> OS -> Name


          An OS is not an application, therefor it doesn't get tracked in SLM. The info has been in inventory however before we even came out with SLM.


          NOTE - You ideally want to make sure that all your clients have got a homogeneous version of the inventory scanner (ideally the latest one), as older clients (assuming you're on 8.7 - I would be talking about things such as 8.1 or 8.5 scanners) may report things differently, causing you to have duplicate / inconsistent entries.
