  • GPMC: Viewing.Group.Policy.Changes.

    Hi,

    If I apply a group policy to an OU and later on I forget what I used in the group policy, is there anyway to view what I have in that group policy?

    Thanks.

      Thanks Dumber

      I tried Group Policy Management Console and it only works in Windows2003.

      I have Windows2000 Server Domain Controllers as well.

      I went to Microsoft website and download FAZAM but it's a limited edition. I wouldn't let me view what settings I have in group policy.

      Please advise.

      Thanks

        You best chance (without purchasing a third party app) would probably be examinig the gpedit.msc mmc snap-in.
        It will not tell you from which GPO the settings have been applied, but will show you the effective settings in use.

              I installed it to an XP machine and it works .
              With GPMC you can only see what GPO settings SHOULD apply to certain SOM (Scope Of Management) which contains W2K machines.
              You can NOT get the actual RSoP (Resultant Set of Policy) from W2K machine as it does not support RSoP operations.

              To sum it up: with GPMC you can know what should be applied, but you can not be sure it IS actually applied.

              With W2K3 on the other hand you can use rsop.msc snap-in to see the settings applied from domain GPOs.

                agree,
                but when you don't know what should applied, but the first step is to know wat should be applied.

                second is to find out wat is applied..
                but doesn't w2k really support RSoP ???? even not from an XP client?

                  Thanks guys for the feedbacks. I do appreciate it.

                  I've done some experiments myself and found out with GPMC :

                  1. GPMC can't be installed on Windows 2000 platform.

                  2. Group Policy Results can't be used to view RSoP ( user settings and computer settings ) on Windows2000 platform ( already tested with Professional and Server ) machine. With XP...YES even though you have 2000 domain and XP clients.

                  3. GPMC that is installed on a WindowsXP machine can view and change what settings you have on a Windows2000 domain.

                  Attached image is the error when I tried to use RSoP on a windows2000 machine. I'm sorry for the crappy look of the pic but I don't have much bandwidth on my connection. Thanks again
