You need the Group policy management console.

The Group Policy Management Console provides:

    * A user interface based on how customers use and manage Group Policy, rather than on how the technology is built.
    * Import/Export and Copy/Paste of Group Policy objects (GPOs).
    * Simplified management of Group Policy-related security.
    * Reporting (printing, saving, read-only access to GPOs) for GPO and Resultant Set of Policy (RSoP) data.
    * Backup/Restore of GPOs.
    * Scripting of GPO operations that are exposed within this tool (but NOT scripting of settings within a GPO)

Hi guys, I know about the GPMC but have never read it yet am not really looking for something to manage my GPOs for me or some of the administrators we have,  but i want to be able to create a database where none administrator can be able to look at all our GPOs for inventory purpose only....that brings me back to my question is it possible to copy a GPO to a database like SQL or something...maybe like an empty policy or so...

Can i be able to copy or export GPOs to a database for inventory reasons like a read only GPO database for the IT department??? But i can still update it when we create or edit the GPOs.....Not with GPMC (Extra 500 points more will be given to the expert) Thanks..
