About the Group Policy module

The Group Policy module reports the discrepancies between the Group Policy security settings and your security policy defined in Symantec ESM. This module contains eleven checks and eleven template files that correspond to and are enabled by each check.

The Group Policy module provides increased support for Active Directory by comparing these security settings to ESM policy settings. The ESM Group Policy templates relate directly to the Windows Group Policies. The majority of the templates are pre-populated with default values. Do not create new templates from the original, pre-populated templates. Instead, you must copy the original template and then make your modifications.
