We used an ADSI script (running as a scheduled task) that reads the
caption from the AD object, and puts them in a group (actually nested
groups so as to manage group membership limitations).  Those groups are
then denied GPO's they are not supposed to receive.

I am probably asking this incorrectly, how can I apply a GPO to only
Windows 2000 machines [the OU I am attaching this to only has machines
running 2000 Server not Pro, and 2003].

Thanks,

Craig

Hello everyone,  WMI Filters are supported on Windows XP and Windows
Server 2003. Since they are not supported on Windows 2000, any WMI
Filter associated with a GPO is ignored on this platform and the GPO is
applied.
