Baseline rules

Occasional Visitor


I started working with security compliance toolkit and noticed that the number of rules listed in the xlsx file is different from what is listed in the .PolicyRules file. Could you please explain what is the difference between these files or rules? (is there a difference between the policy and baseline terms used by the toolkit)

Also is there anyway to download all policy rules in a standard format such as xml or oval, SCAP?

Most GPO settings are implemented with a single registry value, but some are implemented with multiple values. While the spreadsheet -- and spreadsheets created by Policy Analyzer -- show one row per GPO setting, the Policy Analyzer tabular UI shows one row for each value.
