Dave-
Well, you can definitely do it via scripts. For the Software Installation
stuff, you might want to check out my free GPSIViewer utility out on
GPOGUY.COM. Essentially it dumps all packages in a domain into a GUI list
that shows the package path within the UI. I don't remember off-hand but it
may also have a feature to export the list (you'd think I'd know since I
wrote it but I don't have it handy at the moment!). As for startup scripts,
are you looking for embedded paths within the actual scripts? If so, then
you'll probably need to write some text parsing to handle that.

Subject: [gptalk] Pulling out paths from Group Policy

We use group policy for software installations (both MSI and scripted ones),
we use a DFS share for 4 replicated servers which hold the software files.
What we are looking for is a way of pulling out the GPO's which use a
specific server name in the path instead of the DFS name (the servers are
being replaced so any GPOs which reference them won't work anymore).

We have ~2000 GPO's so going through each one will probably make me go
loopy.

Anyone know a better way, would need to look in the Software installation
name and the startup scripts part (both user and machine)

Cheers

Dave
