This recipe shows you how to copy an existing GPO to a new GPO. This is useful when you have baked the perfect GPO, but want to adjust just a single setting to apply to legacy versions of the operating system or a test version of the same infrastructure in another OU.
To copy a GPO, log into a system with the Group Policy Management Console installed with an account that is either of the following:
- A member of the Domain Admins group
- Delegated to create GPOs
Additionally, the account should have at least read permissions on the Group Policy Object to be copied.
