When you copy (not link or relink) a GPO from one OU -OR- more specifically to another domain (from test.company.com to prod.company.com with a trust).

Do GPOs retain their security filters/ groups, WMI filters, etc. ?

NOTE: NOT talking about the "internal" GPO settings i.e. Screensaver, mappings,etc.

Still you have to check whether the group names resolve correctly or not. I assume when you copy a GPO from test to prod you want to filter for the prod groups not for the test groups!

It totally depends on the What type domain trust you have.

1) Domainwide turst : existing group will shown in GPO

2) Selective trust : Group might be not shown if they do not have permission.
