For a project, I need to find out if a group of users, have certain settings in the Internet Options control panel set.
I have taken care of a small active directory network, and now work in a company with a very large active directory, so I have exposure to this but have never had the time to really learn it. ( I will ignore local policies for now since Domain policies over-ride local, and my question involves domain policies.)
Also, I don't have access to the domain controllers to look at the group policies.
From what I understand, you can have policies for the user's account and then policies for the computer account then group these policies into OU's ( organizational units ) .
So for example, users 1 - 5 have group polices setup for their user and computer policies, and these users are put into an OU named GroupA. To see what policies are set for this group of users, I could run results of policy by opening a MMC ( microsoft management console ) and adding the RSoP snap in.
If I have this correct, will the RSoP snap in, show the policies for a group, or will I have to run it on each individual user?
If I have to run it on each individual user, would setting up a script be the way to go?
Sorry if my terminology is off, I am self taught and have picked this stuff up over time.
