Display which group polices are being used by my domain PCs

I've recently applied a screen lock out group policy to an OU in AD and enforced it.

Problem is, some PCs seem to have the policy applied (as they lock out) and others don't.

How do I display which polices are being used by each PC? I would need something to show me which polices are applied to the PC and which to the user. I've used something similar from the cmd line but i cant remember what it was.

Server 2003

Windows xp client.

You can use Microsoft GPInventory tool for that

Using the cmd line, you can use:

gpresult /Scope User /v


gpresult /Scope Computer /v

gpresult will work but I would recommend using RSOP

You can follow this how to from Microsoft.

Thanks. Would the user or computer policy take priority?

And can I use RSOP on a XP PC?

Depends if the GPO is in replace mode or in merge mode..

Run RSOP directly from the server add in the user and the client machine and you should have an overview of what is applied.
