Group Policy Object (GPO) reports
What are Group Policy Objects (GPOs) and how do they work? GPOs are a hierarchical infrastructure that allows a network administrator to implement specific configurations for groups of users and computers that are joined to a domain on the network. Typically, GPOs are security policies that ensure computers on a network adhere to common safety practices. However, this can sometimes perform actions such as installing antivirus or security software, restricting programs from running, or removing permissions that can inhibit instrument operation. Running a GPO Report can provide information on what GPOs and Local Policies have been applied to the control computer on Illumina instruments. How to generate a GPO report Important: GPO Reports must be collected from a Command Prompt with elevated permissions. When opening the Command Prompt, select 'Run as Administrator' even if already running as a local Administrator account (this is required). To generate a GPO report, see the following instructions:
- 1.In the Windows Search Bar, type 'cmd' then right-click the App and select 'Run As Administrator'
- 1.Enter the sbsadmin credentials if prompted.
- 2.In the Command Prompt window, type gpresult /v /r > C:\Illumina\GPO-Result.txt and press Enter.
- 3.This will generate a GPO report and output it to a text file in the C:\Illumina folder on the instrument.
