Find all machines in the network who have local policies set.Find who all have set a local policy a logon/logoff script other than the GPO.

Is there a way to get these names to a file.

All machines in a network use their local policy. If you have a domain GPO then that would overwrite it. If you have setup a login script at the domain level it should overwrite the local policies' Logon/Logoff scripts.

I am not sure of a way to poll computers in a network to see who has a login/logoff script applied at the local level.

Actually just thought of something else but don't have time to do research. Policies are just registry tweaks. SO the logon/logoff scripts should just be registry tweaks. Each Windows XP pro computer has a "Remote Registry" service and you can probably find some 3rd party program to scan the remote computers for the registry entry. Will look into it later.
