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

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.
