How to check for group policy conflicts

Is there a tool or command that i can run that will tell me if there are any policies set in group policy that conflict with each other. Like Computer/User policies conflicting, or Domain/ou policies. There seems to be way to many policies set in our environment and user logon is taking a long time and i think this may have a big role in it.

Hello,
there isn't such tool to determine the conflict, because this kind of conflict will actually never happen - there is always exactly one setting from some of the group policy obejcts, that is used.
But what you can do is to determine the winning policy - or by using other words: to determine from which GPO the policy comes. For this you can use Group Policy Management snap-in. It contains Group Policy Results wizard, which will determine the policies for particular user and computer.

I know this is a very old thread, but when I searched for this today this was one of the first hits, so an update might help anyone like me searching for this.

Microsoft now have a Policy Analyzer tool, which can be used to compare different policy objects, and will highlight policy conflicts, etc.  The MS blog post with the download link is available here - https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/secguide/2016/01/22/new-tool-policy-analyzer/
