DESCRIPTION

The Get-GPStarterGPO cmdlet gets one Starter Group Policy Object (GPO) or all Starter GPOs in a domain. You can specify the Starter GPO to get either by display name or by GUID, or you can specify the All parameter to get all the Starter GPOs in the domain.

You can use this cmdlet to get information about a StarterGPO, or you can create a new GPO from a specified Starter GPO by piping the output of this cmdlet into the New-GPO cmdlet.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get a Starter GPO by name

PS C:\> Get-GPStarterGPO -Name "Windows Vista EC User" 
DisplayName       : Windows Vista EC User 
Id                : 8780588e-ef91-442b-bd5f-2d50de7abf76

This command gets the Starter GPO named Windows Vista EC User.

PS C:\> Get-GPStarterGPO -Name "Windows Vista EC User" | New-GPO -Name "TestGPO" -Comment "Create a GPO by using a Starter GPO" 
DisplayName       : TestGPO 
DomainName        : contoso.com 
Owner             : CONTOSO\Domain Admins

UserVersion       : AD Version: 1, SysVol Version: 1 
ComputerVersion   : AD Version: 1, SysVol Version: 1 
WmiFilter         :

This command creates a GPO named TestGPO from the GPO named Windows Vista EC User Starter. The command uses the Get-SPStarterGPO cmdlet to get the Starter GPO and is then piped into the New-GPO cmdlet to create the GPO.

PARAMETERS

-All

Returns all the Starter GPOs in the domain.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Domain

Specifies the domain for this cmdlet. You must specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain.

For the Get-GPStarterGPO cmdlet, the Starter GPO must exist in this domain.

If you do not specify the Domain parameter, the domain of the user that is running the current session is used. If the cmdlet is being run from a computer startup or shutdown script, the domain of the computer is used. For more information, see the Notes section in the full Help.

If you specify a domain that is different from the domain of the user that is running the current session (or, for a startup or shutdown script, the computer), a trust must exist between that domain and the domain of the user, or the computer.

You can also refer to the Domain parameter by its built-in alias, domainname. For more information, see about_Aliases.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: DomainName

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Guid

Specifies the Starter GPO that this cmdlet gets by its globally unique identifier (GUID). The GUID uniquely identifies the Starter GPO.

You can also refer to the Guid parameter by its built-in alias, id. For more information, see about_Aliases.

Type: Guid
Parameter Sets: ByGUID
Aliases: Id

Required: True
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Name

Specifies the display name of the Starter GPO that this cmdlet.

The display name is not guaranteed to be unique in the domain. If another Starter GPO with the same display name exists in the domain an error occurs. You can use the Guid parameter to uniquely identify a Starter GPO.

You can also refer to the Name parameter by its built-in alias, displayname. For more information, see about_Aliases.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: ByName
Aliases: DisplayName

Required: True
Position: 0
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-Server

Specifies the name of the domain controller that this cmdlet contacts to complete the operation. You can specify either the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) or the host name.

If you do not specify the name by using the Server parameter, the primary domain controller (PDC) emulator is contacted.

You can also refer to the Server parameter by its built-in alias, dc. For more information, see about_Aliases.

Type: String
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: DC

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

CommonParameters

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -InformationAction, -InformationVariable, -OutVariable, -OutBuffer, -PipelineVariable, -Verbose, -WarningAction, and -WarningVariable. For more information, see about_CommonParameters.

INPUTS

Microsoft.GroupPolicy.StarterGpo

You can pipe a Starter GPO to this cmdlet.

OUTPUTS

Microsoft.GroupPolicy.StarterGpo object

This cmdlet returns a Starter GPO object.

NOTES

  • You can use the Domain parameter to explicitly specify the domain for this cmdlet.

    If you do not explicitly specify the domain, the cmdlet uses a default domain. The default domain is the domain that is used to access network resources by the security context under which the current session is running. This domain is typically the domain of the user that is running the session, for instance, the domain of the user who started the session by opening Windows PowerShell or the domain of a user that is specified in a runas command. However, computer startup and shutdown scripts run under the context of the LocalSystem account. The LocalSystem account is a built-in local account, and it accesses network resources under the context of the computer account. Therefore, when this cmdlet is run from a startup or shutdown script, the default domain is the domain to which the computer is joined.
