where I work we have an active directory environment. I have to troubleshoot problems, and have some administrative rights, but when I tried to run resultant set of policy for a user I got an access denied error.
I just want to see the group policy settings for this user, I definitely don't want to change a group policy. I worked somewhere before my current job and was able to change group policy and it was a hassle, and that was for a smaller company, so I have an appreciation for group policy pit falls.
so is there a way to just view group policy settings but not make changes? I want to request that level of access but I don't know if it exists.

Are you running RSOP.MSC? If so it's been deprecated and providing you have read access to the policies you should be able to run gpresult

Try gpresult /h gpresult.html (from cmd) and open the generated html file

that works great Tony1044, and if I use it with psexec, I can get the results on a remote machine.
but the computer I'm trying to get group policies on is a winXP box, I tried

gpresult /S computername /U username /H pathtohtmlfile

but it has this error

"ERROR: Invalid Syntax. Options /U, /P, /R, /V, /Z cannot be specified along with
 /X, /H."

if I use psexec on the winXP box it says gpresult is not a valid command
but if I use psexec on a win7 box it works great

That's odd. I thought it was a valid command on xp but it doesn't support the /H

I'm sorry, you still have the right idea, it works in XP if I redirect the output to a file

gpresult > C:\drivers\test\result.html

this command worked!
Thank you for the help

I should have added, for XP the results aren't in a nice html format, so a .txt file works fine and I just open it in word or something like that, and it is readable.
