I am using the Group Policy Management Console and want to
copy a GPO I made so that I can apply it to different OU's.

It says I am supposed to be able to right click and select
the copy option but I do not see an option to copy the
GPO.  How can I copy the GPO?

I know how to link an existing GPO to several OU's but I
want to make minor changes to each application of the GPO
depending on the OU that its attached to so linking will
not work.

Thanks,
Clarence
