Group Policy's on Containers

Posted on 2007-10-19

I just joined a place as the Network Admin and I am trying to reorganize Active Directory.  The person before me made a lot of GPO's.  Is there a tool out there that can scan AD and tell me what configurations and or permissions are assigned to what containers?  This would make is a whole lot easier.  Any and all help is appreciated.

    You can use the Group Policy Management Console to (comparatively) easily check the settings of a GPO and its application.
    Note that you can NOT install it on a Windows 2000 machine, but you can install it on an XP or W2k3 machine and run it against a Windows 2000 AD.
    Note, too, that installing the GPMC will not change anything in your GPO handling, it's just a different way of viewing the same information.
