I've imported a NISTWinXPPro security template.  I also customized the template for my environment.  I want to export the new template so that I can use this on other OU's I manage. How can I export the newly adjusted security template?

1.  Visit the server whose settings you want to export
2.  Run the Security Configuration and Analysis utility

4.  Run the Security Configuration and Analysis utility on the destination server.  
5.  Run the Security Configuration and Analysis utility
