Weekly I must use the MMC, use the group policy management tool

Click on the Group policy I am looking to report on "domain policy" and then save the report

Is there any way I can do this with a script automatically weekly and save the report wherever I want.
Please keep in mind I will be running this off an XP machine against my AD

Thanks

Look for the GetReportsForGPO.wsf file in the Program Files\GPMC\Scripts folder - built-in and will do what you are describing from the command-line.  getreportsforgpo.wsf /? will give you the full syntax, I think you need to enter the friendly name of the GPO that you want a report of, followed by the pathname that you want the report saved to. (Don't have GPMC in front of me right now or I'd verify.)

Create a scheduled task on a server/workstation that has GPMC installed and that will be online at the time you want the job to run.

Ok so then I have another question.

This job is going to run weekly to the same folder. I dont want it to replace the old one when it runs.. Is there a way for me to have it include the date in the name so that it is different each time it runs?

The built-in script is WYSIWYG, you would need to save a copy of it and customize in order to modify its behavior as you are describing. You can open the wsf file in notepad and see if you can figure out how to modify the name of the file that's being output.
