    Default New WMI filter does not appear in GPRESULT on client devices

    I am having a problem with a new WMI filter I have created on a Windows SBS2011 server, I created it in group policy in the WMI section:
    Code: [View]
    Namespace: root\CIMV2
    Query: select * from Win32_OperatingSystem where Version like "10.%"
    On my clients when running GPRESULT this WMI filter does not appear, all of the others do whether they apply to that client OS or not. Any ideas what I am missing?

    Cheers

    When running "Get-GPO -All -Verbose|sort modification" in Powershell on both the server and client the WMI filter and any associated GPOs are listed in the output which makes this even more strange.

    I have resolved it, it was a mistake on my part. I had been linking my GPOs to the Users OU as I was used to but these particular GPOs had settings made in the Computer policies so should have been linked to the Computers OU. Once I linked them here they appeared in GPRESULT. Odd that Win 7 clients showed the WMI filter correctly before doing this but seems to be working now.
