Using Multiple CLASSes in WMI filter query for GPO

I want to configur a GPO for all workstations full stop and for all member servers that contain a C:\Program Files\Citrix\XenApp folder

Meaning the settings will be deployed to my Citrix Server farm and to my workstations

How do I combine CLASSes in a WMI query

Here is what I'm attempting to save but the GPM won't allow it...
(SELECT * FROM Win32_OperatingSystem WHERE ProductType = 1) OR (FROM Win32_Directory WHERE Name = 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Citrix\\XenApp')

Open in new window

I am not sure you can even do this?
What is this GPO going to do?

You might make it easier on you if you put all your Citrix Servers in a single sub OU of their current OU.
Link your GPO to that out rather than trying to filter it.

Here is a link that may help

Hi yo_bee!

Thanks for the reply, I have to disagree. Restructuring my AD certainly wouldn't be easier than creating a WMI filter for the GPO

Sure I could do that, but the policy needs to apply to all my workstations too.
I have multiple OUs for my workstations and only the workstations and citrix servers in 1 site should have the GPO applied.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Pretty sure that the link I posted should help or did you try that and it did not work?

Hi yo_bee
Thanks for the guides, the first link does not achieve what I was hoping, since both classes must result to true.
I actually was hoping to get my WMI query to work if just one class query is true.
The Win32_OperatingSystem ProductType =1 OR the Win32_Director Name = C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Citrix\\XenApp

I have tried the validation filter but I don't actually have a WMI query to test yet... this is what I need help with.

Install some software and some file GPPs

The GPP part is easy because you will be able to create multiple WMI with either being true, but the install may need to be scripted out using WMI in the script to see if the install can start.

Is it an MSI or EXE that has switches for a silent install?

Hi yo_bee
The software is an MSI. I'll create a script to deploy the software and I'll modify the GPPs too.

Thanks
Antonio
