Check whether computers use the group policy

You can check whether all the computers in a group comply with the policies for that group.

  1. Select the group which you want to check.
  2. In the computer list, Endpoints view, on the Status tab, look in the Policy compliance column.
    • If you see the words “Same as policy”, the computer complies with the policies for its group.
    • If you see a yellow warning sign and the words “Differs from policy”, the computer is not using the same policy or policies as other computers in its group.
    For more detailed information about the status of the security features on the computer and policies applied to the computer, see the respective tab in the Endpoints view, for example, the Anti-Virus Details tab.

If you want your computers to comply with their group policies, see Make computers use the group policy.
