Error 1065 Group policy wmi object missing

I am getting an error 1065, GroupPolicy on my desktops. I have one domain/forest and one DNS server

'The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not evaluate the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) filter for the Group Policy object cn={B3795DEE-5B75-4574-A059-B973E8FA534C},cn=policies,cn=system,DC=mydomain,DC=org. This could be caused by RSOP being disabled  or Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service being disabled, stopped, or other WMI errors. Make sure the WMI service is started and the startup type is set to automatic. New Group Policy objects or settings will not process until this event has been resolved.'

I had deleted a couple group policies no longer in use but none of them should have had a WMI filter applied to them, at least not manually. This is happening to all PCs. They pass the wbemtest.exe, RSOP and WMI are not stopped, paused or disabled. Net share shows the sysvol and netlogon are shared

DCdiag test passes all except 'dcserver failed test systemlog'  and I get another WMI warning:

...Group Policy object cn={A1C874E0-4026-4210-A213-0921EA105D8C},cn=policies,cn=system,DC=mydomain,DC=org...

I have deleted the only 2 WMI filters that I had and also the 2 GPOs linked to them but still get this error. What can I try next?

run wmimgmt.msc on server and right click WMI Control (Local) select properties

Under General Tab it should show "Successfully connected to :<local computer>"


If it shows something else ..just send me output

I ran the command and it does show "Successfully connected to :<local computer>" and then the hardware specs for the server.

Also, it seems to be selective, some PCs can run gpupdate and are prompted to restart (new software installs in GPO) and others give that error.

How do I search for "Group Policy object cn={B3795DEE-5B75-4574-A059-B973E8FA534C},cn=policies,cn=system,DC=mydomain,DC=org" ?

Did not solve my problem but got me looking close at the GPO for WSUS and found that certain machines were outside the scope, fixed that now all is well.
