script to check Forest-Wide group policy settings.

I've been trying to find an easy-to-understand format for documenting our group policy settings. I want to document not just the policies and the OUs that link to them, but the actual settings within the policies.

Right a GPO and then Save Report..

In WS2003 policies can only be defined at teh domain or site levels. There are no "Foewst -wide" policy settings.

The Group Policy Management Console is still the tool you want. I think you'll still have to go to each domain, but there is a Group Policy Objects container that has all the GPOs. Create reports from there. You don't have to go to each OU.

Jeff is correct. You have to manage each domain separately but they will all show in teh same GPMC console. There is a single export wizard that will let you export all GPOs for the domain.
