One way to compare Group Policy settings

Use GPO Compare, which works, but I wouldn’t buy it in a pink fit.

GPO Compare

GPO Compare allows you to quickly compare settings between two Group Policies.  And it works.  I like it.  You can export the differences to Excel or PDF file.  In the two policies above, I thought there were no differences.

I was wrong.  These seemingly similar policies had 150+ differences,  There goes the idea of just turning off GPO A.  I’ll now have to look though those 150 differences and see what really matters.  The price is ok, at $199 US, for what is does.  It would cost me more than $199 to write my own utility.

But the reason I wouldn’t buy it?  The need to “Request a Trial”.  It should be labelled “Request a Sales Call before we let you evaluate it.”
