NetIQ Group Policy Administrator (GPA) 4.0 Hotfix 41280 addresses the following issues:

  • Reports comparing a GPO in the repository to a GPO in Active Directory always showed differences in software installation packages.  Hotfix 41280 corrects this issue by excluding the script path from the comparison.
  • Reports showed "no settings defined" after importing a security template.
  • Reports comparing GPOs show similar GPOs as being different. Hotfix 41280 corrects this issue by removing double quotes from machine security attributes before comparing GPOs.
  • Includes several reporting accuracy improvements.

This Hotfix also provides the following improved functionality:

  • You may experience improved performance when generating GPO reports.
  • You can specify a global group as a GPA Repository user.
  • You can specify a domain local group when editing GPO security.
  • You can specify a user account from a domain other than the domain of the Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) server for an Export Override account.
  • You can customize the column layout for reports.

The Hotfix can be downloaded from:

To install this Hotfix, run GPA40000_Hotfix41280.exe on each GPA console computer.


To customize the report layout after installing Hotfix 41280:

  1. Edit the \Bin\XML\Common\faReptLayout.xml file.


  2. If you want to customize whether or not the report displays in the column or section layout, change the following lines in the faReptLayout.xml file:
    <SECTION NAME="Software Installation" ID="Msi" ENABLE="1" STYLE="0">
    <SECTION NAME="System Services" ID="SecService" ENABLE="1" STYLE="0">
    <SECTION NAME="File System" ID="SecFile" ENABLE="1" STYLE="0">
    <SECTION NAME="Registry" ID="SecRegistry" ENABLE="1" STYLE="0">

    Specify STYLE="1" to view the section in column format.
    Specify STYLE="0" to view the section in the old section format.
    Specify ENABLE="1" to display the section.
    Specify ENABLE="0" to not display the section.
  3. If you want to use the column layout and change what columns the report displays, change each of the column lines, such as this one:

    <ATTRIBUTE NAME="Script Name" ID="P" ENABLE="0"/>

    Specify ENABLE="1" to display the column.
    Specify ENABLE="0" to not display the column.
