Windows Operating System Name and Version: Updated!

October 29, 2012

When configuring sccm I often need the operating system name and version to create collections. An overview:

Clients

  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 5.0 – Windows 2000
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 5.1 – Windows XP
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 5.2 – Windows XP x64
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 6.0 – Windows Vista
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 6.1 – Windows 7
  • Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 6.2 – Windows 8

Servers

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 – Windows NT
  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 5.0 – Windows Server 2000
  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 5.2 – Windows Server 2003
  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 6.0 – Windows Server 2008
  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 6.1 – Windows Server 2008 R2
  • Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server 6.1 – Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter
  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 6.2 – Windows Server 2012

When I like to include a Windows Server 2008 R2 datacenter edition I need to use the following operating system name and version: Microsoft Windows NT Advanced Server 6.1

    Latest Update:
    Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 6.3 – Windows 8.1
    Microsoft Windows NT Server 6.3 – Windows Server 2012 R2

    Question:
    We don’t currently have any Datacenter 2012 or 2012 R2 servers. Do you know if they are listed as “Advanced” as well? I don’t want to accidently overlook them in SCCM if we start using them.

    Accidentally

    Never mind. I just found the possible string values in SCCM and there is only one reference for Microsoft Windows NT Server 6.2 – Windows Server 2012 and Microsoft Windows NT Server 6.3 – Windows Server 2012 R2. Apparently there is no distinction between versions in this field anymore.
