I want to export the GPO rules of different sessions to reproduce them on another windows machine. Is this possible?

This question came from our site for information security professionals.


For normal settings:

  • Go to: %systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy\

  • Copy 'machine' and 'user' folders to the%systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy of the target system.

  • Refresh with gpupdate /force or reboot target system.

For security settings:

  • Open MMC and add the snap-in “Security Templates”.

  • Create your own template and save it as an “.inf” file.

  • Copy the file to the target system and import it with command line tool “secedit”: secedit /configure /db %temp%\temp.sdb /cfg securitysettings.inf.
