Can't copy a GPO in GPMC

Pretty simple question...

From https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc733107.aspx I should be able to do copy / paste operations in the GPMC (this is server 2012R2):

Missing copy command
For the life of me I can't seem to see this option ! What am I missing ? I can create / edit so I guess I have the correct authorizations...

The answer is actually pretty easy: use the context menu of an OU or of the "Group Policy Objects" folder, not the context menu of a GPO. In other words: right-click one line above your current one.

Thanks... but no :)

None of these work...

As for those wondering about the "MyBusiness" OU this domain was migrated from a 2008SBS to 2012R2 (with no particular issue I would be aware of).

Note that you need to copy the GPO itself, not a link.
Right-click a GPO under "Forest\Domains\<Domain>\Group Policy Objects", click "Copy".
* If you now right-click "Group Policy Objects" (you might have to select it first with a regular left-click), you should have "Paste" in the context menu, and if you choose it, a copy of the GPO will be created.
* If you right-click an OU and choose "Paste", you will get a dialog asking if you want to link the selected GPO to this OU (because you can't really copy a GPO into an OU).
