Same OS, different OS names in SIM 7.0

I have 2 servers, both reporting their status into SIM 7.0 just fine. Both have the same OS version and service pack, identical hardware, the same versions of all HP components, are assigned to the same software baseline.

However, one their OS Name fields are formatted differently. Here's what's in the "Product Description" table for each server:

 

Server 1:

System Type    Server
System Subtype    MSCS, HP ProLiant
Product Model    ProLiant DL360 G5
Hardware Description    Hardware: Intel64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 6 AT/AT COMPATIBLE - Software: Windows Version 6.0 (Build 6002 Multiprocessor Free)
OS Name    Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008 Enterprise
OS Type    WINNT
OS Version    6.0.6002
OS Description    Service Pack 2
Management Protocols    HTTP:, SNMP:1.0, WBEM:1.0, SMH:2.0

 

Server 2:

System Type    Server
System Subtype    HP ProLiant
Product Model    ProLiant DL360 G5
Hardware Description    Hardware: Intel64 Family 6 Model 23 Stepping 6 AT/AT COMPATIBLE - Software: Windows Version 6.0 (Build 6002 Multiprocessor Free)
OS Name    Windows Server (R) 2008, x64 Enterprise Edition Service Pack 2
OS Type    WINNT
OS Version    6
OS Description    Service Pack 2, Build 6002 Multiprocessor Free
Management Protocols    HTTP:, SNMP:1.0, WBEM:1.0, SMH:2.0

 

Any idea where these different strings are coming from? It's not a major issue, but it does make grouping and searching for servers more inconvenient.
