Question on creating a new Group Policy when the settings are known

    Question

  • I'm creating a process to use across multiple environments which will presumably be the same OS versions, possibly not.

    What are best practices around creating a GPO if the settings are known like across multiple environments?

    Some app support people favor copying previous files and going it that way.  Are there problems with this?

  • Hi,

    With regards to the Group Policy creation, I suppose it could be export/import.  I thought it was simply copy and paste.  Is that possible?

    >>>You could copy and paste GPO follow the instruction of the article below. But you should pay more attention to permission of the GPO.

    >>>Are those computers, which are deployed on multiple environment, on one domain?

    If yes, you could create OU, and add those computers to the OU, then create GPO link to the OU.

    If not, you cannot make those computers to apply the domain GPO setting.

    Some app support people favor copying previous files and going it that way.  Are there problems with this?

    >>>Do you mean that export and import GPO?

    If yes, here are articles below for your reference.

  • The environments are all disconnected from each other entirely separate environments physically.

    The reason I ask is that somehow in the files there's older content which is generating access denied errors in the Windows Application logs.
