The GPOTool can browse GPOs and check for GPO consistency within and across domains. This tool also displays information about GPOs, including properties that cannot be accessed through Group Policy Object Editor, such as the functionality version number and extension globally unique identifiers (GUIDs).
Download the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit and install it.
