Moving users from one OU to another OU in a Windows 2008 Active Directory Environment

I am looking for best practices in moving users from one OU to another OU. These users have 10 groups assigned to them and 2 group policies.
This is for a 2008 AD environment.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

All user attributes (including groups will stay when you move the user to a new OU in the same domain. As for the GPO, just make sure the 2 policies are assigned to the news in the new OU.

Group policies are tied to an OU and affect the contents of the OU.
You must be aware that moving users to a new OU will take them out of context for the group policy that was applied to the other OU.
You can either create a new policy for the new OU or LINK the other policy to this OU as well.
