Find all Empty GPO’s

Posted: October 16, 2012 in GPO, Scripts

Easiest way to find empty GPO is to check the User and Computer version no of each and every GPO. If user and computer version no is zero then that GPO is considered as empty. So how do we check the version no ? If we have more than 100 GPO then it is difficult to check the version no one by one manually.. In this situation we can use the below powershell commands to query the version no of GPOs.

PowerShell Code:-

Import-module grouppolicy

$gpos = get-gpo -All

foreach ($item in $gpos) {

if ($item.Computer.DSVersion -eq 0 -and $item.User.DSVersion -eq 0) {

write-host $item.Displayname
