SCCM 2012 - Default Client Settings - Copy policy?

Hi Experts.
I'm wanting to setup a new default client policy for my servers, we currently have a default client policy setup which applies to our desktop
Is there way that I can copy the existing Default Client Settings policy, and then just tweak the settings specifically for my server environment, or do I need to create one from scratch, if I right client on the existing Default Client Setting policy, I only get the properties options?SCCM 2012 Default Client SettingsSCCM 2012 Default Client SettingsSCCM 2012 Default Client Settings

Further, it's simple to override default client settings in SCCM 2012. When you decide that you need to override one of the many client settings options that are available, you can focus on just what needs to be overridden. When you create a custom set of client settings, you include in this custom list only those settings that should differ from the default. Any settings not included on the custom list will be derived from the default settings automatically

no need to .. all you need to do is concentrate on the changes and they will inherit what hasn't been changed.

There is no need to copy. Settings are applied per collection basis now.

========================================================================
 A set of default settings is supplied with Configuration Manager 2012. When you modify the default client settings, these settings are applied to all clients in the hierarchy. You can also configure custom client settings, which override the default client settings when you assign these to collections.

When you create a client setting a priority is assigned to it, those with a higher priority win over settings with a lower priority.
