Summary

WMI Filter Processing Problem

Group Policy processing depends on the Windows Management Instrumetation (WMI) service. During preprocessing, the Group Policy service evaluates WMI filters to determine if a Group Policy object is within scope of the computer or users. Failures with WMI can prevent Group Policy settings from applying as well as cause inaccurate reporting results.

Causes

Resolutions

Correct a failed WMI filter

Group Policy relies on Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to evaluate filters that determine if a Group Policy object is applied to a computer or user. Windows cannot apply Group Policy objects to users or computer if it cannot evaluate WMI filters.

Possible resolutions include:

  • Ensure the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service is enabled and configured for automatic startup.

  • Ensure the path, %Systemroot%\System32\Wbem, is included in the PATH system environment variable.

  • Use the WMIDiag utility to diagnose the problem further.

  • Ensure the computer can evaluate WMI queries. To start the Windows Management Instrumentation Tester utility:

  • Open the Start menu and then click All Programs. Click Accessories and then click Run.

  • Type wbemtest.exe in the box and then click OK.

  • Click Connect. In the namespace box type root\cimv2. Click Connect.

  • Click Query. Type Select * from WIN32_OperatingSystem in the Enter Query box.

  • Click Apply. A successful query returns one object.
