  • Group Policy, is "what you design/configure/set/implement" (your plan/design/intent)

    RSoP is "what actually happens at the target user/computer after GP is applied/processed" (the effective net result)

  • also, useful to know that the older RSoP.msc snapin for MMC, may not display *all* GP settings (such as GP-Preferences), so if needing to examine the full RSoP data, it's recommended to use gpresult
