Dear All,

I have a GPO configured using the MS Security Compliance Manager. Thereafter i had it exported as a GPO Backup Folder.

After generating it, i tried to put it back into AD using the Group Policy Management snap in.

However i am lost as to where i should copy this GPO to..i read that there is a backup folder by default forest name/domain/domains/backup folder or something like that..

Any advice as to where i should store this GPO?

Thanks for the help in advance.

No need of manullay putting back the backedup GPO.

Just go to GPMC.msc , Go to the Perticular GPO (which you want to restore)------>Right Click on it------->select restore from backup option----->select the GPO and restore it.

By default all the Group Policies are stored in GPT(Group Policy Template) folder under sysvol.
