Troubleshooting

<What debug level do you need to run to see messages of interest. Are there any other ways to verify the feature is doing what it should>

For Developers

How to test it

make test TESTS=samba_tool.gpo

<Anything else notable about running the tests...>

Where the code is located

The core parsing logic for GPO is in the python gp_parse module.

The outer logic lives in netcmd/gpo.py (where the actual regex matching used to identify which parser is used) and the tests are all in the samba_tool gpo.py tests.

Note: The parser for PReg .pol files is auto-generated from IDL.
