Comparison Experiment RRS feed

  • Question


    I thought I would carry out a quick experiment...

    I picked the XPG-SSLF-Desktop 1.0 baseline and exported it as a GPO Backup.

    I reimported it into SCM and compared the import against the original baseline.

    I am told by SCM that there are now: 20 settings with different values and 27 settings not common to both.

    The 20 settings with different values is easily explained, because they are because the GPO backup values are not being translated back to a human readable form.

    The worrying ones are the 27 non common settings. 20 of these are again understandable, as they are settings in the baseline that didn't get reimported. This can be probably explained as being those policies that are only applicable to domain GPO and therefore get stripped from a local GPO.

    The other 7 are settings that only appear in the imported GPO backup, where did they come from?

    The settings are:

    1. Force shutdown from a remote system.
    2. Network access: Allow anonymous SID/name translation.
    3. Windows Firewall: Domain: Allow unicast response.
    4. Windows Firewall: Domain: Firewall state.
    5. NoMSAppLogo5ChannelNotify
    6. NoJITSetup
    7. NoUpdateCheck
    The compare action results window doesn't report what these non-common settings are set to, it only lists the settings' names. It think it would be better if the values were listed too.
