Summary

WMI Filter Missing

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
This unit monitor does not contain any causes.
Resolutions

Correct a missing WMI filter

Possible resolutions include:

  • Ensure the associated WMI filter exists in the domain by clicking the WMI Filters node in the Group Policy Management Console. If it does not exist, remove the link from the associated Group Policy object (GPO) by selecting None from the WMI filter list on the selected Group Policy object in the Group Policy Management Console. Or recreate the WMI filter and associate it with the selected GPO using the Group Policy Management Console.

  • Use the WMIDiag utility to diagnose the problem further.
