Group Policy/Group Preferences reporting tool, cloning Group Policies

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I am looking for a Group Policy/Group Preferences reporting tool that could either or both of the following:

1) Check a Group Policy/Group Preferences structure and compare it with the default for that system, in particular Windows 2008 R2. The situation would be that there have been Group Policies created/modified on a server and I would like to see all the settings that are not default.

2) Compare two servers for differences in Group Policy. In this situation I would compare the Group Policy/Preferences settings of two different servers to see what the differences are.

3) I would also like to know the best way to clone Group Policies/Preferences from one system to another e.g. I have a system where all the Group Policies/Preferences are to my liking and want to then apply them to another system.

Again the environment I am most interested in is Windows 2008 R2.
