Hi my dear visitors
In this article, I want to introduce you to two methods that help you to backup your group policy policies Onto your environment,
The first part will be done using the group policy management console. and the second part will be using PowerShell.
I strongly recommended creating scheduler task with a script that will backup your GPO constantly.
The default location of backup is located under the following path:
“C:\Windows\SYSVOL\Domin\policies”, great let’s start guys.
First part – Backup group policy management console:
Please open the “group policy management”:
Right-click on your domain and select “Manage Backup”:
Click on “Browse” button and create a new folder:
After that, go back to group policy management and right click on your domain and select on “Backup All”:
Specify the folder you already created:
Type any description and
Click on Back UP:
My backup files:
The second part is to perform the backup using Powershell, which allows you to run the scheduler task.
Open the new folder on your computer:
Open Powershell and import group policy module by this command:
And now run the backup command:
Backup-GPO -All -path C:\”GPO_Newbackup
