There is a Operating-System attribute in Active Directory attributes defined by Active Directory

As I don't have access to AD containing MAC OS joined devices can anyone tell me what would it populate under this attribute ?


I don't see an Operating-System attribute (attributes don't usually start with an uppercase letter btw), only operatingSystem, that is set to:

Mac OS X

The relaed operatingSystemVersion is the appropriate macOS release, e.g.


The release number doesn't seem to update, it reflects the release number at the time of joining to AD.

  • Operating-System is the name of the attribute as it appears in the schema, and operatingSystem is the LDAP display name for the attribute, as per the OPs link. – Harry Johnston Aug 31 '19 at 22:54
