Gpresult only shows user policies applying

May 26, 2013

This week we have had a few challenges with group policies. While tracking through I was using the GPMC and running the modelling wizard and a policy should apply. Then I ran gpresult on the client machine but it was only showing user policies and not any computer policies applying and I couldn’t understand why!

The key here is the command prompt you run gpresult from must be run as administrator or it won’t give you any computer policy information!

It doesn’t say it anywhere, but that solves it!!
