I need to import GPO settings

Hi I was given 4 GPO settings to import into our AD but it seems AD only allows us to import one setting at a time. When I do this it overwrites the other GPO settings. Is there a way to import all 4 at once?

These are 4 different GPO's that were backed up seprately. When you restore a GPO it will always overwrite the settings that are correctly in place. You will need to manually add the settings as you cannot merge them from a restore procedure.

This is by design unfortunately.
