List Computer GPOs

This SBA shows the current computer Group Policy Objects applied based on the records inside the "Operational" log under "Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy".

By default the log size is configured to 4MB,
That means that this SBA can look back this much.
Consider increasing the log size to view older entries.
