Sorry, hit sent before I wanted.....
Can I just use the filter below and add Windows 2000 Professional to it
so the GO only runs against machines that have Windows 2000 Pro or XP on
Root\CimV2; Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Caption =
"Microsoft Windows XP Professional"

Subject: [gptalk] GPO Filters

I have a GPO I want to run all my machines except machines running
"server". Is creating a GPO WMI filter and linking it to the GPO the
easiest way to accomplish this? I know filters will not apply to
machines running Windows 2000 (Or so I read) the GO would run anyway,
and some machines are running 2000 Server so would be the best way to
have this GO not run against and ever changing list of host running some
version of 'Server"

Thanks for your opinions
