Hi,

use the import/export function of the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC). If you doin't have GPMC installed, get it here: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/gpmc/gpmcintro.mspx

best regards,

Thanks, Are there changes to be made to the exported file before importing?

depends on what you are exporting.
If you are exporting permissions linked to user accounts, they will most probably not match in another forest.

best regards,
Draak

Thanks
