Environment

NetIQ Group Policy Guardian 2.0

Resolution

goal
Can Group Policy Guardian (GPG) co-exist with other applications that use Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) on the same server?

goal
How does Group Policy Guardian (GPG) use Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)?

fact
NetIQ Group Policy Guardian 2.0

fix
Group Policy Guardian (GPG) uses Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) to query Windows domain controllers. There are no known issues with GPG co-existing on the same server with other applications that use WMI.

note

To determine whether WMI is functioning, use WBEM Test to run a query against the domain controller. WBEM Test is a Microsoft native tool for testing WMI. If WBEM Test does not return anything, the WMI service on the domain controller is not functioning.

For more information about using WBEM Test, see the Microsoft TechNet article "Scripting Eye for the GUI Guy" at http://www.microsoft.com/technet/scriptcenter/resources/guiguy/wbemtest.mspx.
