    You don't import policies to OUs - You can import them -   then apply them to OUs

    What are you trying to do ?

    Accepted Solution

    yes you can use the export/backup GPO option from gpedit.msc you can then move the backup files over to the new servers

    To import a Group Policy object

        Open Group Policy Management.

        In the console tree, double-click Group Policy Objects in the forest and domain containing the Group Policy object (GPO) into which you want to import settings.


            Forest name


            Domain name

            Group Policy Objects

        Right-click the GPO, and then click Import Settings.

        Follow the instructions in the Import Settings Wizard, and then click Finish.
