From a GUID to its GPO name.

Numerous times I had the issue, when troubleshooting a group policy object error, in which I only had the GPO’s GUID, but not its actual name. Well, it turns out that there is a powershell applet that performs a search in AD, using the GUID, and it returns the GPO’s full description for you.

  1. Open Widnows PowerShell Modules
  2. Type: get-gpo
  3. Paste that GUID and press ENTER
