Can AGPM manage WMI Filters a GPO uses?

    Question

  • Hello,

    Can Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM) control/manage WMI filters a GPO uses?  In other words, is/can a WMI filter be brought under AGPM control for 'Change Management' in the same way a GPO is brought under AGPM control for 'Change Management'?  Thanks in advance.

  • I found out from my own research AGPM does not manage WMI filters.

  • Hi,

    Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM) allows organisation to implement change control and versioning to their Active Directory Group Policies. This allows multiple people to edit Group Policy Object (GPO) with their changes going live the instant the change is made. Any changes to a GPO needs to be check-in, deployed then approved before ever making it to production.

    So AGPM is a tool let you to manage GPO, but not manage how to deploy GPO.

    You still deploy GPO in Group Policy Management Console, you can still configure WMI filters at there like before.

    For more information please refer to following MS articles:

  • Iam stuck with the same issue did anyone find the solution for this, do i need to give delegated access to the GPO's outside AGPM if i do that , when we deploy the GPO the permissions in the Production Delgation Tab are overwriting the ones i changed.

    Ex : test_GPO - has delegated permissions (advanced (read and modify permissions) groups x,y,z outside AGPM

    test_GPO - does not have production delegation to the above groups, once this GPO is checked out ,edit and checked in and deployed the custom permissions given to x,y,z groups are gone groups are also not visible.

    I have gone  through many links on internet, please suggest a way around this.

    regards,
