I was trying to do a client search for clients on Chrome, but after specifying "Chrome" in the Client OS field, I got zero results even though there are numerous Chrome devices on my network.  I contacted tech support about this and what they ended up figuring out after doing a GoTo Meeting session with me is that even though in HiveManager, in the wireless client list it shows "Chrome" in the Client OS column, the APs are showing the OS as "CrOS".  The tech rep did a CLI session into an AP and that's what the AP shows.  So we did a client filter search and typed in "CrOS" in the Client OS field and now it shows the list of clients on Chrome.  Just wanted to share this in case anyone else was having this issue.  I did request that they make this a feature request so that the Client OS name is consistent between what the AP shows and what HiveManager shows.
