yes, apparently microsoft uses n00b programmers too.

this indicates the development process did not even have a simple inspection process - passing that delta past anyone of experience would have yielded some comments one would think.

The WMI Filter is the built in one for the Folder Redirection GPO, that's enabled/created in the Dashboard.

It has the >= operator on a string? All of the WMI filters I've seen by Microsoft including the Technet docs have always used the like operator and just listed multiple versions.

The Server 2012 Essentials used "<>", IIRC.

<> means not equals which is valid for string operations but still doesn't make sense to have the % wildcard in it.

 

Oops. It must have been just checking for Vista originally with 'version like "6.1%"' and then somebody at Microsoft messed up the update for Windows 8.

Yeah, most likely. Or just sheer laziness.

 

 

However, out of courisity, tested this on Server 2016 Essentials Tech Preview 3...

It's now just:

 

select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where ProductType = "1"

So, it's not checking the product version at all anymore.

Server 2016 will have an Essentials variant? Sweet!

That's what it looks like. And even better, it looks like it's not forced to be the primary domain controller, so you seamlessly integrate it into an existing network, if needed. 

 

Check out the Tech Preview 3, if you want to look at it.

 

Aside from those, there isn't too much different (some long overdue cleanup of the dashboard, but other than that...)

Can't wait to see the price on that for those of us not endowed with MSDN. As I understand it, it also includes the MultiPoint feature as well.
