    Auditing Group Policy

    Hi,

    Does anyone have or know of a way to audit changes made to group policy? The more free the better.

    Reason is that our support department has gotten bigger recently and we are struggling to keep track of changes that are made to it, thus making change management and problem solving difficult.

    Are you using the GPMC? With it you can see exactly what policies are being applied.
