Best way to deploy tested GPO to specified OUs only, Not all OUs are in the same tree.

I have created a new GPO and tested it.  I want to now deploy it to spcific OUs what is the best wayt to accomplish this?

Can i export the GPO and inport it on the OUs i want?
Do i link the GPO to OUs?
Can i place it at the forest root and link it to specific OUS from there?

I only want this GPO on certain OUs to affect certain computer account.  I already have the computer accounts enumerated the way i want i just want to know how to deploy the GPO to many different OUs at once.  I am not sure moving forward that i can simply use hierarchy as the deployment mechanism.  Simple parent child OU setup proably won't work for me.

You can link a single OU to one or more GPOs within your AD.  Within Group Policy Management Console, simply right-click on the OU and select "Link an existing GPO here."  Repeat this process for as many different OUs as you want to link this GPO to.

This is the default behaviour of GPOs, you don't need to do anything special to the GPO to be able to link it in multiple locations within your tree.

Hope this helps.
