Has anyone looked into Group Policy Management products (outisde of the functionality provided by Microsoft's Active Directory)? I'm trying to choose a product, and wanted to compare based on what current users thought (rather than what the sales departments tell me). The products I've been able to identify so far are FullArmor's GPAnywhere and Intellipolicy products, NetIQ's Group Policy Management Suite, Destop Standard's GPO Vault, and ScriptLogic's Active Administrator. Can anyone comment on how you chose the Group Policy management product you're currently using? What are the strenghts and weaknesses of the products you looked at? How easy are they to set up and use, and what would you want those products to do that they don't do? Also, pricing: are they all based on per user? Which is great if you have a small number of users, but bad if you have a large number.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
