Using an Active Directory system, administrators can manage Group Policy Objects from this single point of access. Group Policy Management Console combines tools like Active Directory users and computers, and Active Directory sites and services. It also includes RSoP or Resulting Set of Policies, which provides reports on applied policy settings. The Group Policy Management Console Delegation Wizard also helps to implement changes to Group Policy Objects In addition, there are opportunities for programmers to manage GPOs with C or C+.
