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

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

Commented:
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
