fix

With the addition of Hotfix 41280, Group Policy Administrator (GPA) allows the ability to customize the report layout to show information in a Table format instead of a sectional format.  The table format dramatically improves reporting performance of GPO that have Software installation, System Services, File System or Registry settings set. 

After applying Hotfix 41280, perform the following to change the formatting of the reports, edit the \Bin\XML\Common\faReptLayout.xml file.

  1. If you want to customize whether or not the report displays in the column or section layout, change the following lines:
    <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.
  2. 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.
