Default Domain GPO

In W2k the last admin tried to push everything through the Domain security GPO then it didn't work right so he tried to turn on policy blocking. On OUs then to stop it from taking effect., and this had been causing some trouble for me. I was hoping someone could point me in the direction of a tool that I could use that will show me all of the setting he changed in a specific GPO?

Thank you

Hello ChicagoMikeW-

You can use the GPMC (Group Policy Management Console) to look at effective and resultant policies. It is a very effective tool, you can see only the GPO settings that are applied to an OU, the order they are enforced, the resultant effect (if more than one Group Policy is applied to same OU), you can save reports in html format for later review etc.

You can download GPMC and get information about it from:

I believe GPMC is the tool that would best suit you.

Thanks and Good Luck!
