    I would like to copy a group policy object so I can apply it to another OU with minor changes. How can I create a copy of the original GPO without linking?

    Si,

    The Group Policy Management Console lets you back up Group Policies then re-import them into a different policy. I think that would achieve what you are trying to do.

    It worked a treat Phil, I backup up the policy that I wanted to copy. Created a new policy for the OU that I wanted to copy the policy into, then imported the backed up policy into the new policy.

    If you see what I'm saying. :D

    Just a thought, would this work if you are migrating users, computers etc to another domain.

    Just so that you could have the same GP's in a differet domain (if you see what I mean).
