One of the very first freeware projects I undertook when I started SDM Software, was to build a PowerShell snap-in (yes, they were called snap-ins back then) for Group Policy. That was back in 2007, long before Microsoft had their own Group Policy module (<cough> a total ripoff of ours <cough>). Anyway, it’s been several years since I touched that code–to the point where it was still shipping as a snap-in! But no more. I finally got around to updating the whole thing to bring it into the modern era, complete with a module manifest, and support for PowerShell 4 and 5.x (and no more snap-in support!). I also added a couple of cmdlets — out-sdmgpsettings and update-sdmgp.
These two, respectively, let you output GPO settings to the pipeline (see screenshot above) and let you remotely refresh Group Policy. In addition, I’ve made some minor changes to the other 27 cmdlets to provide some parameter consistency and to fix some issues.
