I have tried creating a base policy in SCM 3.0 and deploying it which seems to work until I reboot and then do a compare which gives me a lot of differences..
I have also tried making chnages to the machine via gpedit and then doing a export. After the VM has been reset I apply the policy and then reboot and compare and I am getting differences again.
I am not sure what to do at this point as I need to have somthing with consistent and that I am not worried about settings not being applied..
Also has anyone figured out a better way to display the compare data suchas and html document or a message box when differences are found. I find that the arrow system could confuse some..
I exported the various LPO settings using the WSF as seperate exports and then imported them into Security Compliance Manager v3 and did a compare. That gave me Differences, Matches, Only in A & Only in B. The Export to Excel is handy for later
