Having a problem with Win2003 server Ent.   Unable to get the gpresult /h GPREPORT.HTML cmd to work.   It works on Win7 (PC) works on Ser2008 Std,  however I can't get the (.html or .xml) reports to work with 2003 Server Ent.

What am I doing wrong   OR does it NOT work with this O/S.    I can get cmd to write to a text file,  however the (.html OR .xml) detials more info.

I'm fairly certain this is a new feature in 2008.  Microsoft does enhance things over time more often than they deprecate things.

As you can see in the screen shot, there is no option in GPRESULT from 2003 R2 to save as XML or HTML.

The Resultant Set of Policies is a snap-in for Active Directory Users and Computers.  Or you can run an RSoP query by adding the RSoP snap-in to a MMC.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Scroll most of the way down and see this:

Using the Advanced System Information-Policy Tool to Create RSoP Queries

The Advanced System Information-Policy tool can be used to create an RSoP query. You can view the RSoP query results in a HTML report which is displayed in the Help And Support Center window. You can choose to print the report, or you can save the report to a.htm file. The RSoP query results in this case is acquired from RSoP logging mode for the user currently logged on to the computer from which the RSoP query is performed. The information displayed in the HTML report is listed below:

    Computer name, the domain and the site

    User name, and the domain

    All applied GPOs for the particular user and computer.

    Security group information on the particular user and computer.

    Startup and shutdown scripts, and logon and logoff scripts

    Security settings

    Registry settings

    Microsoft Internet Explorer settings.

    Applications installed

    Folder redirection

Use the steps below to create a RSoP query using the Advanced System Information-Policy Tool

    Click Start, and click Help And Support.

    In Support Tasks, proceed to click Tools.

    When the Tools pane opens, click Advanced System Information in Help And Support Center Tools.

    Click View Group Policy Settings Applied in Advanced System Information.

    The Group Policy results are displayed.

Use the gpresults wizard from the gpmc instead, it will give you the same results as that command for the machine and user you specify.

I believe the gpmc will require the RSoP snap-in as mentioned above to get the HTML output needed.
