Will a GPO using WMI Filtering still process if the WMI Database cannot be accessed, Will the GPO process the policies on all systems in the OU anyway ?

I am going to have to say that the GPO will not process. This is because a WMI filter will only apply a GPO when it evaluates to true. If the WMI can not be accessed then that would evaluate to something other than true and the GPO will not apply.

There is a good tool to use to check WMI filters for GPOS. It is called WMIFtest and there is a link to it here
