Free SCCM Report: Operating System Dashboard


December 2019’s free  System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) or should we say, Microsoft Endpoint Manager Configuration Manager (MEMCM), giveaway is the Operating System Dashboard. This dashboard is available in both Power BI and SSRS report formats.

Managing and upgrading operating systems (OS) is now more complicated than ever with the release of Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 and 2019. How do you report on the status of all your computers? Unfortunately, SCCM / MEMCM doesn’t provide you with built-in reports to help answer questions such as:

  • What OS goes with what ring (branch version)?
    • How many computers are still using Windows Vista or Windows 7?
    • Is that Windows 10 build still supported?
    • Which computers are using what OS or ring?

Where can you turn to for help?

Operating System Dashboard


The Operating System Dashboard shows you the total number of computers by system role within a collection. It further breaks down the percentage of these computers by OS, ring (branch version), and state. You can quickly see, all in one place, the number of computers using a specific OS and ring, and the number that are supported, unsupported or nearing end of support.

Enhansoft Reporting – Operating System Dashboard

The Operating System Dashboard is found within Enhansoft Reporting’s Software Inventory category. This category of dashboards and reports provides you with all-important information about the software installed within your environment.

The full Operating System Power BI and SSRS report-set includes:

  • Operating System Dashboard
  • List of Computers by Operating System Setting
  • Computer Operating System Details

The List of Computers by Operating System Setting report and the Computer Operating System Details report are described below (after the images of the dashboard) along with report screenshots of both Power BI and SSRS versions.

List of Computers by Operating System Setting

This report provides a list of computers with a specific operating system, ring (branch version) and state. Use this report to plan ahead! You can drill through from this report to the Computer Operating System Details report.

Ring (Branch Version): When it comes to updates, it is important to know what Windows 10 computers belong to what ring type: Current Branch, Current Branch for Business or Long Term Servicing Branch. Notes: Due to timing, it is possible for newly upgraded Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019/2016 computers to be listed as, “Unknown.” This automatically fixes itself when SCCM / MEMCM is upgraded. Operating system (OS) releases without rings (Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Vista, XP, Windows Server 2003, 2008, and 2012) display “n/a” for ring type.

State: With these results, “Supported,” “Expires Soon,” and “End of Support,” you know exactly when an OS becomes unsupported and you can see what computers need to be updated. Notes: As soon as the OS expires, “Expires Soon,” moves to, “End of Support.” Unknown is a temporary state; this automatically fixes itself when SCCM / MEMCM is upgraded. OS release results for Windows 8.1, Windows 7, Vista, XP, Windows Server 2003, 2008, and 2012 are based on the end of support date (see the table below).
