|Import a WMI Filter|
In the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) console tree, right-click WMI Filters in the forest and domain into which you want to import a WMI filter.
In the Import WMI Filter dialog box, enter the .mof file that contains the WMI filter you want to import, and then click Open.
In the Import WMI Filter dialog box, specify the appropriate information in the Name and Description boxes, and then do one of the following:
- To import the WMI filter without changing it,
- To change the WMI filter and then import it,
click Edit, make the appropriate changes to the namespace or
query, click OK, and then click Import.
- To import the WMI filter without changing it, click Import.
- You must have privileges to create WMI
filters in the domain in which you want to create the filter to
complete this procedure. By default the Domain Administrators,
Enterprise Administrators, and Group Policy Creator Owners groups
have this permission.
- WMI Filters is only available if at
least one domain controller in the domain is running Microsoft
Windows Server 2003. The same is true for WMI Filtering on the
Scope tab for Group Policy objects.
- Importing a WMI filter creates a new filter
instead of modifying an existing filter.
