Does Security Manager track changes to GPOs?

Security Manager 3.x, 4x, and 5x.


Security Manager is an event based incident management solution. As such, Security Manager (SM) does not have this capability since the changes to GPOs (group policy objects) do not generate events that can be pulled into Security Manager for tracking and analysis.    

However, NetIQ has another product, NetIQ Group Policy Guardian, that was designed to provide for the tracking and reporting of group policy object changes. You can read more by clicking on the following link:
