How to Export Local Group Policy Settings Made In gpedit.msc.

To export group policy you made in on a machine with the Local Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc) to other machines follow following steps.

1.) Open %systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy\

Within this folder, there are two folders – “machine” and “user”. Copy these to folders to the “%systemroot%\system32\grouppolicy – folder on the target machine. All it needs now is a reboot or a “gpupdate /force”.

Note: If you cannot see the “grouppolicy” folder on either the source or the target machine, be sure to have your explorer folder options set to “Show hidden files and folders”…

For security settings:

1.) Open MMC and add the Snapin “Security Templates”.

2.) Create your own customized template and save it as an “*inf” file.

3.) Copy the file to the target machine and import it via command line tool “secedit”:

secedit /configure /db %temp%\temp.sdb /cfg yourcreated.inf
