Importing a GPO

Is there a way to import a GPO without overwriting the existing settings? I just want to export a GPO from another server and import the GPO into my existing 2008 server. When I import it does not keep the old settings. Step by step instructions would be good. Thanks.

Are they in different domains?   You can backup and import using GPMC in the steps outlined in the TechNet article below

Instead of impoting the GPO to exiting GPO template.Create new GPO template and import the GPO setting and apply the new template to OU/domain as per requirement.

Import a Group Policy object using GPMC
