Episode 4 – Get-GPResultantSetOfPolicy

Download the MP3 Podcast

In this episode we look at how you can generate an RSOP with Windows PowerShell by using Get-GPResultantSetOfPolicy by using the GroupPolicy module that comes with the GPMC that is bundled in Windows Server 2008 R2 and the most recent version of RSAT.

# Populate dir with the current dir regardless of whether
# you are in a script or executing in the shell
if ($MyInvocation.MyCommand.Path) {
    $dir = $MyInvocation.MyCommand.Path
else {
    $dir = $pwd

$user = 'home\Administrator'
$report = Join-Path $dir 'rsop.html'
$comp = 'Server1'
Get-GPResultantSetOfPolicy -User $user -Path $report -ReportType HTML -Computer $comp
