Dynamic users group

Looking for a cleaner solution to applying user policies, based on OS.

I have user groups that may be running either XP and Win7.
At the moment I specify a filter for the OS in each individual policy. Each policy is in a policy group say 'Admin Win7 policy group' and applied to the group 'admins'. But so does 'Admin XP policy group'. This means the correct policy gets applied but in the agents "Show Properties/Policies" I get "Non-Effective" messages for policies that get trapped by the filter.

An enhancement request for an equivalent to the 'dynamic workstation group' - 'dynamic user group' perhaps?

cheers

Re: Dynamic users group

Currently Exists if you use eDir.

However, it would not help since the OS is not an inherent User Attribute.

Your current implementation is the logical way to go.
