Tips: How to troubleshoot Group Policy with GPLogView

For dumping the Group Policy–related events logged in the System Event Log channel and the Group Policy Operational Event Log channel, you can use GPLogView.exe. It is one of the command-line troubleshooting tools. Though the GPLog View.exe works only on Windows Vista, it is not included with it. You can download it for free. The following are the command-line options for this tool.

-? Shows this usage message.
-o [output file name] Output filename required for text, xml, or html; not valid if -m is specified.
-n Do not output the activity ID.
-p Dump the process ID and thread ID associated with each event.
-a [activity id guid] Shows only events matching the given activity ID.
-m Runs the tool in monitor mode displaying events in real time.
-x Dumps the event in XML; the only other options allowed with this option are –m and -a but not both together.
-h Dumps the events in HTML format; -m or -x option not allowed, and -a and -n are allowed, but not both together. Also must specify -o option.
-q [Query file name] Uses the query specified by query file.
-l [Publisher name] If -q is specified, the publisher name must be specified.

The following examples illustrate the use of this tool:
GPLogView.exe -o GPEvents.txt
GPLogView.exe -n -o GPEvents.txt
GPLogView.exe -a ea276341-d646-43e0-866c-e7cc35aecc0a -o GPEvents.txt
GPLogView.exe -p -o GPEvents.txt
GPLogView.exe -x -o GPEvents.xml
GPLogView.exe -x -m
GPLogView.exe -x -a ea276341-d646-43e0-866c-e7cc35aecc0a -o GPEvents.xml
GPLogView.exe -h -o GPEvents.html
GPLogView.exe -h -a ea276341-d646-43e0-866c-e7cc35aecc0a -o GPEvents.html
GPLogView.exe -h -q somequeryFile.txt -l Microsoft-Windows-GroupPolicy -oGPEvents.html
If you go through the above examples, you can have an idea about implementing the same for troubleshooting Group Policy.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
