As switches /v and /z produce lots of information, you may find it useful to redirect output to a text file.

Overlapping policy settings are open to any computer or user, and a set of policy settings can be generated by the Group Policy feature based on a given computer for a specific user when the user logs on. The generated set of policy settings will be enforced on that computer for that user.
