[THIN] Re: Group policy objects

True, however you must have a valid Windows 2003 server license before you can 
"legally" use the GPMC.  The GPMC will support 2000 and 2003 domains/gpos.  
 
This is from 
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=F39E9D60-7E41-4947-82F5-3330F37ADFEB&displaylang=en:
 
"GPMC can be used to manage Windows Server 2003 as well as Windows 2000-based 
Group Policy implementations. Customers who have at least one valid license of 
Windows Server 2003 can obtain and use an unlimited number of copies of GPMC. 
Please see the End User License Agreement (EULA) provided with the GPMC 
software for details on licensing terms."

Actually if you have the new Group Policy Management Console copying, backing 
up and linking GPO's to new domains or OU's is very easy.  I am currently in 
the process of designing a 'template policy' of sorts that contains all of the 
common settings for all of our OU's and then I will copy to each Domain/OU and 
modify it further for each particular location.
The GPMC is a very good utility for use with GPO's.

GPOs can be moved in Windows 2000, but not very easily.
 
Basically it involves setting up a blank GPO and identifing the GUID for the 
object.  For the GPO you want to copy from,  idendify the object's GUID.  Then 
on the domain controller,  locate the SYSVOL\{domain name}\policies\{copy from 
GUID}\ directory.  Copy it's contents (dirs and all) to the SYSVOL\{domain 
name}\policies\{copy to GUID}\ directory.
 
Go edit the GPO, verify your settings and apply the policy as needed.

Windows 2003 allows you to export and import the GPO's.

If a group policy was built in a test environment... How would I move
this into production.??

Is it a case of just copying a .gpo file over and assigning it to
Sites/domains/OU's??

thanks in advance..
