Group Policy and OU

Is there anyway I can check an OU in ADUC to see what group policies is assigned to it or is it simply just a case of going through group policy and checking. I'd like to see through ADUC so that I can see if numerous policies are assigned.

Hi

Yes in ADUC you can right click any OU and see the group policy tab in properties.

ADUC GPO
Now i was used to do this in Server 2003, on your request i logged into a Server 2008 R2 machine but apparantly they stripped it from 2008.

As this video shows it was there.

Also check the Inheritance tab in GPMC, that will tell you the linked and GPO that you inherit from higher levels (domain and parent GPOs for example)

No, it seems you need to go to the group policy editor.
