    Question

  • Hello team,

    Few our client machine are getting the error 

    The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows could not evaluate the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) filter for the Group Policy object (GPO) %8. This could be caused by RSoP being disabled or Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service being disabled or stopped, or other WMI errors. Make sure the WMI service is started and the startup type is set to Automatic. New GPOs or settings will not be processed until this event has been resolved.

    I got some fix in the below url

  • Hi,

    Here is the Possible resolutions from TechNet article include:

    • Ensure the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) service is enabled and configured for automatic startup.
    • Ensure the path, %Systemroot%\System32\Wbem, is included in the PATH system environment variable.
    • Ensure the computer can evaluate WMI queries. To start the Windows Management Instrumentation Tester utility:
      1. Open the Start menu and then click All Programs. Click Accessories and then click Run.
      2. Type wbemtest.exe in the box and then click OK.
      3. Click Connect. In the namespace box type root\cimv2. Click Connect.
      4. Click Query. Type Select * from WIN32_OperatingSystem in the Enter Query box.
      5. Click Apply. A successful query returns one object.
    • Use the WMIDiag utility to diagnose the problem further (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=92714).
