Document GPO's with a script. i found this site but not sure how to run this.

Hi,

Document GPO's with a script. i found this site but not sure how to run this.
I found this link which specifies to do what i want but when script run i get the first line has error.

http://itknowledgeexchange.techtarget.com/vbscript-systems-administrator/easily-document-group-policy-objects-in-microsoft-word-using-vbscript-with-the-microsoftxmldom-and-wordapplication-objects/

Is there any supporting files i need to have?
Does it work for anyone.

Regards
sharath

Have you also looked at the built in scripts that come with GPMC

http://wmug.co.uk/blogs/1972/archive/2006/05/01/39.aspx

several there will give you reports.

I haven't tested that script you have there yet.

Thanks

Which script are you referring to? GetReportsForGPO.wsf also documents a GPO.

GetReportsForGPO.wsf
is the the save report option when right click the GPO. if yes then thats not what i need. I need a report in word format which explains what each setting does

ok understood, if I have time I'll test the script but can't right now.  You could also look at policy manager from sysprosoft

http://www.sysprosoft.com/pol_summary.shtml

...but that will only dump the settings into excel not word.

Thanks

Mike KlineCommented:
ok from the screenshot the export to excel feature on one of the GPOs
I'm not saying this is perfect though.  A similar discussion about GPO reporting came up on GP MVP Darren Mar-Elia's list last month.  In the end people agreed there should be better tools and I think there are some in development.
 
Thanks
