It’s that time of the year again! I’ve expanded upon an existing feature in the AAD Network Test Tool.
One of the prerequisites listed on the AAD Connect support page is to ensure the Turn on PowerShell Transcription GPO is set to Not Configured. Whether you have it configured to “Enabled” or “Disabled” doesn’t matter. The presence of the setting will cause setup and upgrade procedures to fail.
One of the more challenging aspects of Group Policy can be figuring out which policy is applying and configuring a setting. I’ve updated the AAD Connect Network Test Tool to not only detect if the PowerShell transcription setting is configured, but also which policy or policies are responsible. So, in the event that you have multiple policies configuring this setting, the script will now help you track down the settings.
This check is included in the SystemConfiguration parameter and will run by default. You can also call it specifically by specifying the SystemConfiguration parameter on the command line:
As always, you can pick up the tool in the Gallery: http://aka.ms/aadnetwork. Good luck!
