Greetings, I'm trying to scan a remote Windows 2008/2012 server cluster.
I want to get the current RSOP value of a single or a few policies on those servers.  There's over 400 servers.
I don't care if I have to scan each policy one at a time, but I would like to just get the value for that policy.

Every RSOP Powershell I see, returns a massive XML/html file response:

get-gpresultantsetofpolicy -reporttype xml -path c:\reports\LocalUserAndComputerReport.xml

Open in new window


How do I just get the value I'm looking for, so I can provide a report of all servers and the value of the one given Policy?

thanks

I don't think there is easy way of doing it, such as take the exact setting using powershell command

You need to know the exact key word in XML file. Then using PowerShell, search the xml document for that key word.

report should be based on if the key word is there in the XML file or not.
