Re: AD Policy audit tool for Windows 2000

Just to clarify on this a bit more. I need to know what settings that
are applied. I don't need a report showing me the status of every
policy. Just the ones that have been changed from their default.

Thanks everyone for your responses. Here is an update on what I have
found so far. I would also like to have your feedback on any of the
tools listed here if you have any experience with them.

1) GPOVault (free) from DesktopStandard: This can compare settings
between 2 GPO rsops. Anyone has any experience using this? This has to
be used in conjuction with GPMC.

2) GPMC from Microsoft: This tool may have the functionationality I am
looking for interms of finding the changed GPOs but I am not so sure.

3) GPInventory from Microsoft: I am not sure about this either.

4) Secedit from Microsoft: Does this run on Windows 2000?

If you have any experience with these tools can you please provide me
some feedback? I need to know which one will be the best choice to
figure out the GPO settings changed after a default installation.
