Notes

  • You must have Full Control permissions on a WMI filter to change its permissions.

  • You cannot remove or change inherited permissions for WMI filters.

  • All users must have Read access to all WMI filters. Otherwise, Group Policy stops processing when it encounters a WMI filter that cannot be read.

  • You cannot use Group Policy Management to remove Read permissions from WMI filters.

  • To open Group Policy Management, click Start, click Programs, click Administrative Tools, and then click Group Policy Management.

  • WMI Filters is only available if at least one domain controller in the domain is running Windows Server 2003.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
