How to check GPO setting in Windows 2008 server

    Question

  • Deal all,

    Could you tell me how to check the context of  GPO setting for domain users in the DC ( dc is a Windows Server® 2008 Standard)?

    And is it possible to check such setting in a XP client?

    Thanks a lot

  • In Windows XP clients, you can use two tools to see what policy is in effect by Resultant Set of Policy and Gpresult command.

    Resultant Set of Policy: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/rspintro.mspx?mfr=true
    Gpresult: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/gpresult.mspx?mfr=true

    You can also get a report on policy from Help and Support Center by following steps:
    1. Click the Start button, and then click Help and Support.
    2. Click Support.
    3. Under See Also, click Advanced System Information.
    4. Under Advanced System Information, click View Group Policy settings applied.

    The report includes User name and domain; Computer name and domain; When User settings and Computer Settings were last applied; Folder redirection details; Logon, logoff, startup and shutdown scripts; Installed software; and Administrative Templates. The report also gives information about Security Settings and connection and proxy settings for IE Maintenance.

  • Hello,

    When you run gpresult command line it will show what are the policies applied on the client computer. 

    additionally you can refer the below link which might help you.

    Each GPO setting has an explanation that describes what it is good for.
