Viewing the GPO Settings on a Windows 2003 Server and Fun with Manager

Windows Server 2003 Fun

I had some strange settings showing up today, and needed to view the applied GPO settings for one of my member Windows Server 2003 computers. I will look into other ways to view this, but one quick and dirty was is the following:

  • Go to Start –> Help and Support –> Tools –> System Information
  • View the Advanced System information
  • View the Group Policy Settings, Applied

Fun with Manger

Every now and again one of our users calls us to say that her orders are coming in from Manger. I am told this is either one of two things:

  1. If she can ping the servers internal address, the vendor needs to be contacted
  2. If she can’t ping the internal server address, she should be given a new ip address and walked through running an ipconfig /release /renew
