You cannot import or paste some group policies across domains by using the “Group Policy Management” MMC snap-in

Consider the following scenario:

  • You use the Group Policy Management MMC snap-in to define and configure some policies in a domain.
  • You do either of the following:
    • You export some group policies, and then you import them into the current domain or into a new one.
    • You copy some group policies, and then you paste them into the current domain or into a new one.

In this scenario, the importing or the pasting action reports a “successful” result. However, some random group policies are missing after the importing or pasting action is finsihed.

For example, you define a wired network policy in a domain, and then you export it. You then import the policy into a new domain. After the importing process finishes, the defined wired network policy is missing in the new domain.
