There are some good scripts that come with GPMC  http://wmug.co.uk/blogs/1972/archive/2006/05/01/39.aspx

Not sure those meet your needs

SDM makes a tool that lets you compare two  http://www.sdmsoftware.com/group_policy_compare.php

You can right click on your domain in GPMC and use the search feature

There may be a way using powershell to search for duplicates across all GPOs...have never tried it.

Thanks

Mike

just use gpmc.msc (group policy modelling console) available from microsoft for free.

run the group policy modelling wizard tool at the bottom and see which settings apply to users / computers and from which gpo's.
