group policy console

Which servers deploy group policies - and are there any utilities on these servers to determine which policies are applying which settings. We have a very locked down server where we need to use the command prompt. I cant run any of the windows gp result tools to see what is applying what - I am new to GP, so I wondered if there is some sort of central server which is used to define and apply the policies, where you can see which policy is disabling the command prompt.

HAve you tried running RSOP.msc ? RSOP.msc will tell you which GPO are being applied to that machine.  Group policies are deployed via active directory. logon to a domain controller and the tools  you want to use are group policy management under administration tools

You can also try to install the RSAT tools on a domain computer and add the Group Policy Management Console (which is the central tool for administrating policies)using the programs and features tool.

Rsop.msc seems to be restricted on the server itself

If you run it on the server yes.
If you run the Group Policy Managemtn Console and do a Group Policy Result there you can choose multiple machines..
