Group policy with WMI filter fails to apply. The WMI query ( WMI filter linked to a GPO ) times out due to which the GPO does not apply to the computers, intermittently.
GPSVC logs show the following :
GPSVC(320.af8) 12:00:14:840 FilterCheck: Evaluate returned error. hr=0x80041069
GPSVC(320.af8) 12:00:14:840 ProcessGPO: The GPO does not pass the filter check and so will not be applied.
ERR for 0x80041069 gives the following result :
# for hex 0x80041069 / decimal -2147217303
# as an HRESULT: Severity: FAILURE (1), FACILITY_ITF (0x4), Code 0x1069
# for hex 0x1069 / decimal 4201
# The instance name passed was not recognized as valid by a
# WMI data provider.
# 2 matches found for "0x80041069"
WMI filtering was taking time while being processed. It was trying to enumerate all the domain names as query used was :
[Select * from Win32_NTDomain where ClientSiteName = "XYZ" ]
Add domain name component to the WMI query to resolve the issue ( along with the AND operator ):
Select * from Win32_NTDomain where DomainName = "Domain_name" AND ClientSiteName = "XYZ"
Make sure the below hotfix is already installed :
After you apply a WMI filter, the GPO does not take effect on a client computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2
Timeout for WMI queries :
Per-Vista = None
Vista onwards = 30 seconds ( hardcoded )
Behavioral change when using WMI-Filter in a GPO
In one of the cases, it was informed that removing customized security filtering from the GPO ( that has WMI filter configured ) resolved the issue, however, it has not been tested or verified.
