I received an email stating that a particular GPO is going to take affect this weekend and I wanted to know how I could find and analyze what this GPO is going to produce?  This is on a Windows 2008 R2 server.

get a test system and apply the GPO then test.  Also if you have access to group policy manager in active directory you can investigate what settings are enabled and see a brief description of what they do.

Also you can ask the person who created the policy.

Is there another way to verify what the GPO's are supposed to do...maybe is there a way to verify without connecting to the actual server?  Where else can I check for this?  Would it be under a specific folder or something..Maybe SYSVOL folder?
