How do I create or modify WMI filters on a Group Policy Object using Group Policy Administrator?

This functionality is not available in the repository. However you can add a WMI filter to a GPO from GPExplorer.

To add a WMI filter to a Group Policy Object:

  1. In GPExplorer, right-click the Group Policy Object you want to add the WMI filter to and click Properties.
  2. Select the WMI Filter tab.
  3. Select This filter.
  4. Click Browse/Manage.
  5. Click Advanced to create or import a new filter.

Note: The request for this type of functionality is being considered for a future release, however, at this time there has been no decision made to include this feature.
