How To: Multi operating system enviroment
I come across a real neat little trick for managing both Windows XP and Windows 7 in a mix environment. Here is how I have done.
I setup a new Windows 7 policy which i was happy with. I then added a WMI query to the group policy so the policy will only work if it is detected on a Windows 7 computers. The query in question is:
I then moved this Group policy to all my students. Now to ensure that your XP policy does not start on the Windows 7 clients I add a WMI query to the XP client. The query is:
select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Version like "6.%" and ProductType = "1"
If you use mandatory profiles you can do this at the computer level with a computer configuration. Cant say I have a solution for roaming policy's.
Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Caption = "Microsoft Windows XP Professional"
The reason I share this is because I was originally using a loop back policy for Windows 7 and this was just ugly.
Hope this helps anyone in the same station as me.
