On Error Resume Next
 
Set objContainer = GetObject _
    ("LDAP://ou=Students,dc=wisesoft,dc=co,dc=uk")
 
strGpLink = objContainer.Get("gPLink")
intGpOptions = objContainer.Get("gPOptions")
 
If strGpLink <> " " Then
    arrGpLinkItems = Split(strGpLink,"]")
    For i = UBound(arrGPLinkItems) to LBound(arrGpLinkItems) + 1 Step -1
        arrGPLink = Split(arrGpLinkItems(i-1),";")
        strDNGPLink = Mid(arrGPLink(0),9)
        WScript.Echo GetGPOName
        Select Case arrGPLink(1)
        Case 0
            WScript.Echo "No Override is cleared and the GPO is enabled."
        Case 1
            WScript.Echo "No Override is cleared and the GPO is disabled."
        Case 2

        Case 3
            WScript.Echo "No Override is checked and the GPO is disabled."
      End Select
