Group Policy serves as a backbone to Active Directory infrastructure, ensuring that right configurations are applied to all the objects linked to it. Real-time monitoring of Group Policy objects enable IT administrators to audit changes and ensure IT security settings are intact.
The following is a comparison between the procedures of obtaining GPO reports with Windows PowerShell and ADAudit Plus:
The following cmdlet generates GPO report for the specified GPO in HTML format.
Get-GPOReport -Name "Name of the GPO" -ReportType HTML -Path "Mention the location where report needs to be saved, For Eg: C:\GPOReports\Report1.html"
To get reports for all the group policy objects in a domain, use the following cmdlet
Get-GPOReport -All -Domain "Name of the domain" -Server "DC1" -ReportType HTML -Path "Mention the location where report needs to be saved, For Eg: C:\GPOReports\AllReports.html"
In order to save the reports in xml format, replace HTML with XML in the above cmdlets.
Following are the limitations to obtain GPO reports using native tools like Windows PowerShell:
ADAudit Plus will automatically scan the domains to retrieve information about the all the group policy objects, generate the report and present it in a simple and intuitively designed UI.
