Graham-
You're correct. GPMC focused on 2000 domain that is not ADPrepped will not
present WMI filters as an option and, though I haven't tested it
specifically, it should just show up when you do update the schema.

Thanks both for mail replies.

Would i be right to say that this would explain why, using GPMC on a Windows
2003
server , but in a Windows 2000 domain that has not been AD'prepped, i do not
see the
WMI filters underneath the domain 'branch' ?

by corollary do i then need to do anything to the GPMC configuration after
ADPREP is
applied ?

or does GPMC somehow query the directory on startup ??

Thanks
