Networking: WMI Filtering for Group Policy Object Application or WMI for FQDNing some properties
The syntax would be:
set o = createobject(“adsysteminfo”)
I’m trying to figure out a way to get software packages to deploy per-department (OU) while leaving that GPO linked to each OU, but not applying (after first deployment).
Maybe if we roll it out, applying to another OU nightly until all OUs are covered, this will work.
I did notice that if you remove the link of a GPO, the OU/PCs in OU are “aware” of the software installation policy, but if you re-link the GPO the packages will redeploy. This is not a practical way, as you may want to upgrade, or install packages, using the package removal options.
The WMI Filters function of GPO application may help. I’m interested in finding out if you can make WMI Filters self-aware of an FQDN (say, the computer’s).
