This is an easy one for you Powershell guns, I don't use powershell too much and I'm not across it as much as I'd like...
so if I run the command
GWMI Win32_OperatingSystem | select name
I get the below
"Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise |C:\Windows|\Device\Harddisk0\Partition1"
What if I only want Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. How do I do it?
p.s. Yes I understand there is another property 'caption' that only has 'Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise'. This is more about the process of manipulating output.
I've created a short script showing different options to extract the desired text from the property.
