Resultant Set of Policy

Group Policy Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) reports Group Policy settings that are applied to a user or computer. Group Policy Results in GPMC requests RSoP data from a target computer and presents this in a report in HTML format. Group Policy Modeling requests the same type of information, but the data reported is from a service that simulates RSoP for a combination of computer and user. This simulation is performed on a domain controller running Windows Server 2003 and is then returned to the computer running GPMC for presentation. Finally, the RSoP MMC provides an alternative way to display this information, although Group Policy Results is generally the preferred method.
