I am trying to search for computer objects in the AD global catalog to find the QAS version that is installed.
Within ADUC I can see the "Operating System" information (which includes the installed QAS version), however, this does not show up when I dump the AD object properties via a GC search ("cn=<computer name>").
How can I do this via a GC search, or is there another (command line) QAS tool that I can use?
The attribute storing the OS and QAS version for computer objects is 'operatingSystemVersion'.
So if you're doing an LDAP search that would be the one to use, e.g.:
So you would have to expand on that depending on what your specific criteria is.
vastool search "(&(objectCategory=computer)(operatingsystemversion=*qas*))"
The man page for vastool is the best place to look for more on the search function.
