    Viewing Computers in AD - Operating systems

    Is there a way of showing in a list, the operating system of each computer in the domain?

    I am able to view each one individually by viewing it's properties, but this is as far as i've got.

    Cheers.

    I was hoping more for a list of computers and then what OS they each use, rather than listing the devices of one particular OS, if this makes sense.

    I've always used other tools for this.

    My PHP inventory system does this

    Yep I get you. Powershell should be able to output something to a text file or CSV. Would that be ok?

    Much as I hate Powershell, it has its uses.

    Code:
    Get-ADComputer -Filter * -Property * | Format-Table Name,OperatingSystem -auto
    There are a lot more properties whcih will give you finer detail, and you can sort by whatever field(s) you want.
