Hi,

Could anybody tell me if there is any reference of the AD Group Policies stored locally on the local PC.

The reason I ask is for troubleshooting purposes.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,
John

Ultimately, you could use the Resultant Set of Policy tool to determine which Active Directory GPO's are currently in effect on your local machine...

Conversely, if you are simply looking for a "master list" of the default Active Directory Group Policies, you will find that Microsoft actually makes them available on a spreadsheet...

C:\WINDOWS\system32\GroupPolicy is a folder where you can look to see if you have any gpo's, but on a client machine there is no sysvol folder.

the computer has to be part of a domain, and you have to be able to view hidden folders to find.  otherwise you might try searching for xxx.pol files on your computer.

Thanks for that I'll have a look for these.

Would either of you mind having a look at the other question I've logged in relation to "home folders not mapping" it's kind of related to this question and it's driving me mad.

Many Thanks,
John.
