We are looking at pushing out a group policy but restricting who it goes out to via ip range (rather than OU or windows group based),

We have been looking into WMI filtering an have come up with:

select * from Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration where IPAddress="10.*.*.*"

but it doesnt seem to work as expected, does anyone have any experiance with WMI that could help with this?

    I think you could use this:

    select * from Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration where IPAddress like "10.%"
