Group Policy Scripts in Windows Server 2008/2008R2/2012

With the release of Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) on server 2003, Group Policy had many sample scripts which were very handy when working with Group Policy.  These scripts included:

BackupAllGPOs.wsf
BackupGPO.wsf
CopyGPO.wsf
CreateEnvironmentFromXML.wsf
CreateGPO.wsf
CreateMigrationTable.wsf
CreateXMLFromEnvironment.wsf

DumpGPOInfo.wsf
DumpSOMInfo.wsf
FindDisabledGPOs.wsf
FindDuplicateNamedGPOs.wsf
FindGPOsByPolicyExtension.wsf
FindGPOsBySecurityGroup.wsf
FindGPOsWithNoSecurityFiltering.wsf
FindOrphanedGPOsInSYSVOL.wsf
FindSOMsWithExternalGPOLinks.wsf
FindUnlinkedGPOs.wsf
GetReportsForAllGPOs.wsf
GetReportsForGPO.wsf
GrantPermissionOnAllGPOs.wsf
ImportAllGPOs.wsf
ImportGPO.wsf
Lib_CommonGPMCFunctions.js
ListAllGPOs.wsf
ListSOMPolicyTree.wsf
QueryBackupLocation.wsf
RestoreAllGPOs.wsf
RestoreGPO.wsf
SampleEnvironment.xml
SampleMigrationTable.migtable

SetGPOCreationPermissions.wsf
SetGPOPermissions.wsf
SetGPOPermissionsBySOM.wsf
SetSOMPermissions.wsf

These scripts are no longer packaged with Group Policy Management console in Server 2008/2008R2 or Server 2012.  Microsoft however has released these scripts for download to be used with any of the later versions of the Windows Operating system.  To download these scripts please view the following TechNet website:
