Microsoft Group Policy Diagnostic Best Practice Analyzer ("GPDBPA" but don’t call it that!) is a stand-alone program that an administrator can run from a Windows Server 2003-based system or from a Windows XP-based system. You can use the tool to do the following:
- Perform a proactive health check on the Group Policy environment to detect common configuration errors that frequently generate support incidents.
- Collect diagnostic information and initial data from an environment, and then automate some analysis of that data.
- Obtain a snapshot of the Group Policy configuration for archiving. This data may be a useful reference if a future problem occurs.
