I have a group policy object for all of my desktops on my network. It is just for pushing our Software Update Services files out to the desktops. What I need now is a separate gpo just for our servers, the difference being that they will be set to automatically get their updates over the weekend and be set to restart, whereas the desktops are optional updates at the users convenience. What I want is to be able to copy the existing one and then just change the computer is is applied to. Thanks

Hi biotec,

I'd just create an OU for the servers, put all the server objects in there and then make a new GPO to do want you want and apply it to the server OU. As the SUS setting are only about 4-6 entries, it's faster to re-enter them rather than try to export and import the current GPO.
