Export Group Policies (Xenapp 6.5) from One Windows 2008 R2 Forest to Another

Hi,

I have a number of complex group policies that I created on one customer site (Citrix Xenapp 6.5 server and user).
I want to export and modify them for use on another client site.
Both customers have a Windows 2008 R2 forest.

Is it simply a matter of backing the group policies up on the source forest, and restoring them on the new forest, then modifying the policies for the different domain name and AD security groups before applying them to new OUs?

Or is there anything else I should be looking out for?

Cheers,
Fin

You also need to import the policy from the backup using Migration table in GPMC. Migration table will give you the oppourtunity to change Domain Specific values like Domain Names, Any Server Names, Accounts, URLs etc.
