GPO WMI Filter Based on Host Name

Hi,

I need to set a WMI filter for a GPO based on any Computers that are WIN 7 OS and the Host Name starts with "GIC".

Kindly let me know how to set it up.

Thanks.

If I remember correctly you simply add 2 filters to the same GPO. It will perform an "AND" so only if both filter return true it will apply:

select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where  Version like '6.1.% '
select * from Win32_ComputerSystem where Caption like 'GIC%'   

Open in new window

Thanks,

Is there any way i can query a WMI filter and check results  prior to applying it to GPO ?

Sorry, but the "Version" query above is not ideal - Server 2008 R2 will have the same version string (and there's a trailing space).
You can do it in a single WMI query, which is less expensive:
Select * From Win32_OperatingSystem Where (CSName like 'GCI%') And (Caption like '%Windows 7%')

Open in new window

To test a WMI filter in advance, you can use this tool, for example:
