Applied GPOs

GPResult

When you are trying to determine why policy is not being applied as expected, one of first things you should do is examine the Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) for the user and computer experiencing problems with policy settings. Using the Gpresult command-line utility, you can view RSoP.

This will give you the various GPOs that are applied and denied to the computer and user. It will show what area each is located in, the last process time, what security group the object is in, and more.

Examples:

The most general usage:

gpresult /h result.html

This will make an html page in whatever directory you are currently in. I suggest switching to the c:\ first.

                               by the <filename> parameter. (valid in Windows
                               Vista SP1 and above and Windows Server 2008 and above)

    /H        <filename>       Saves the report in HTML format at the

                               allows you to see if a setting was set in
                               multiple places. See the Group Policy
