Well, I don't know about that Bart, but you may be able to get there with
something that my company, SDM Software, is getting ready to release.
Essentially we are releasing a Scripting Toolkit for GP, where you'll be
able to modify GP settings via script (PowerShell primarily). So, in your
scenario, you could write a script to read values from one GPO and write
them into another.

Hi darren, 


You know what i would really love.


 To be able to cut and paste settings between gpo's from one editor to
another. Reworking gpo's that need to split in two for example is simply a
pain in the but. 

Microsoft get to it :-)

Desktopstandard had this in their free version of GPO Vault but its not
available for free anymore. I've heard this so often that maybe I will try
and write something!

I think this has been asked before but I searched the archives and didn't
find anything. Is there a tool or process I can use to look at two different
GPOs and show me the differences between the two? Preferably in a nice
little report similar to what GPMC produces?


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
