GPresult on Windows 7 machine in domain - local security policy report?

Environment: Windows 7 Professional in domain environment running server 2008 DC

When on a Windows 7 Pro workstation, logged on as a domain admin I want to see the local security policies that were put in place before the workstation was joined to the domain (and the resulting GPO's gone into affect).

I try:

gpresult /v 

Open in new window


but it only yields the Computer & User security settings applied at the domain level.

How do I find out whats applied at the computer level? Does the report combine the computer settings (non domain) with the computer settings (domain GPO)?

Thanks!

Please run gpresult /h <path to html file> to get output in html format.

This output shows what domain polices applied at computer level, what polices at user level.

Once you join the machine to domain, local computer policies will be overwritten if its got conflicted with domain polices because the order of GPO application is LSDU
L - local policies 1st
S- then site
D - the domain
U - then OU level

So local computer polices will get applied 1st at computer reboot and then OU level polices will get applied last

If you have configured any local polices, you can view it through gpedit.msc.
However any local policy setting if get conflicted with any domain level, OU level polices, that will get overwritten

Thanks Mahesh. Is there a gpedit /h pathtofile.html for the properties set in the MMC (gpedit.msc) though?

No
html output only for domain based polices

The only way I know is to view gpedit.msc directly for local settings if any.
