I want to create a smart group with two attributes:
Patch Reporting: macOS is greater than or equal 10.11.0 AND Patch Reporting: macOS is less than or equal 10.12.6
Literally this is:
10.11.0 <= MyMacOSVersion <= 10.12.6
With this smart group I got all 10.13.x clients, but not the other clients between 10.11.0 and 10.12.6. Interestingly, it does not show my 10.13.6 test client, maybe because the version is not listed in Patch Reporting.
So, I'm a wrong? Or should this work? :)

One way would be to be explicit with the OS versions. Build a smart group that contains all Macs with OS = 10.11.0 OR 10.11.1 OR 10.11.2 OR 10.11.3... and so on up to ... OR 10.12.6. It's a pain to manually do it but that would get the job done.
Another way would be OS is not like 10.10 AND not like 10.13

Good idea. I already have smart groups for every major release. So, I could be explicit with OS versions and put them all together in one group. And yes, it's a pain. ;)
But I thought these are the use cases Patch Reporting was build for.

Solution is not to use "Patch Reporting macOS".
Use "Operating System Version" instead, which has the operators.
Thx Pascal from Support team for the hint. :)
