Exporting GPO as HTML

Posted on 2011-03-17

Hi,

We are using Windows Server 2003 R2 Domain Controllers. We have one OU Called Workstations and there are 10 Group Policy Objects are applied to this OU like GPO 1, GPO 2...GPO 10. I want to export all the ten group policies and wish to save them as HTML file for each Group Policy. Can anyone please provide me any script how to do this?

I know there is a script in C:\Programfiles\GPMC\Scripts\GetReportsForAllGPOs.wsf but this query will give all the GPOs in the entire domain as HTML one by one. But I want only for a particular given OU.

Please provide me the needed query for this.
Thanks in Advance.

With the default scripts, you can only create reports "per GPO", not "per OU".
You can use "GetReportsForGPO.wsf" to create a report for a single GPO:
cscript "GetReportsForGPO.wsf" "GPO 1" "B:\ackup\Folder"
If you need to do this on a regular basis, you can create a wrapper batch script for it:
@echo off
setlocal
set GPOList="GPO 1" "GPO 2" "GPO 10"
set ReportFolder=C:\GPOReports
set ScriptFolder=%ProgramFiles%\GPMC\Scripts
if not exist "%ReportFolder%" md "%ReportFolder%"
for %%a in (%GPOList%) do (
  echo Processing %%~a ...
  cscript.exe "%ScriptFolder%\GetReportsForGPO.wsf" "%%~a" "%ReportFolder%"
)

You just save it as Whatever.cmd, and you need to modify at least the variables "GPOList" to contain the GPO names you want to retrieve, and "ReportFolder" to contain the path where the generated reports should be stored.
The GPMC needs to be installed on the machine where you run the script, and if it's a default installaiton, the "Scriptfolder" should already be set correctly.
