For the first it’s difficult to collect all possibilities as I mainly work with Symantec Altiris (ITMS), but for AD it’s really straight forward.


PowerShell query for all Windows 10 builds before 1607:

Get-ADComputer -Filter {OperatingSystemVersion -like "10.0 (10*"} -Property * | FT Name,OperatingSystem,OperatingSystemVersion -Wrap –Auto


Query for all Windows 10 build 1511 specific:

Get-ADComputer -Filter {OperatingSystemVersion -eq "10.0 (10586)"} -Property * | FT Name,OperatingSystem,OperatingSystemVersion -Wrap –Auto
