Using a Test Environment

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

Before you request that a Group Policy Object (GPO) be deployed to the production environment, you should test the GPO in a lab environment. If you develop the GPO in a domain in a test forest, you can export the GPO to a file and import the file to a domain in the production forest. You can then test the GPO by linking it to an organizational unit (OU) that contains test computers and users.

noteNote
You can also import a GPO from the production environment of the domain. For more information, see Import a GPO from Production.
