Using Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP)

The Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) tool gathers information on all existing policies to determine the policies in effect and the order in which they are applied.

RSoP has two modes: logging mode and planning mode. In planning mode, RSoP helps construct a "what if" scenario so that you can test the effect of a new policy or test policy precedence. In logging mode, RSoP can tell you what policies are being applied to a particular user and can help you discover policies that should be removed or repaired.

Running an RSoP Query

An RSoP query can be run on a site, a domain, a computer account, a user account, or an OU. Both planning mode and logging mode have options to assist in configuring your query.
