Manage Windows Vista policy from WS 2003

I'm sure some of XP's policies will work on Vista. It's a case where you should use WMI filtering to prevent them from applying to Vista machines though...that is, if you want your XP and Vista policies to be different from each other (which I personally would).

Just create a WMI filter on root\CIMv2 with a query like this:

Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Caption like "Microsoft Windows XP%"

Then apply that filter to the GPOs that you want to apply only to Windows XP. I don't have any Vista machines in my domain yet, but the filter for that would probably be something like:

Select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Caption like "Microsoft Windows Vista%"
