How do I migrate PolicyMaker Items to Group Policy Preference Items?

PolicyMaker customers have been waiting for an easy way to migrate their PolicyMaker settings over to Group Policy Preference settings. The solution is finally here!! We have developed a commandline tool that you can run against your environment to find all of your PolicyMaker settings and convert them to Group Policy preference settings. Download the tool from the Microsoft download page.

For more information about the tool, Mike Stephens has put together a very comprehensive blog post covering the new tool and it's use on Ask the Directory Services Team.

  • Does this migrate our PolicyMaker Outlook profile configuration?

  • According to the system requirements you have to have be a Domain administrator to use GPPMIG.

    Where does that leave the rest of us who still need to migrate Policy maker items within our OU but are not Domain admins?

    The only solution I have found is to manually copy the PolicyMaker item to a text file, edit the file to use the Group Policy Preferences clsid, then paste into preferences item in new gpo.

    What if we are not Domain admins but still need to migrate Policy maker items within our OU?

  • Hello Guys,

    I`m here again. I just would like to ask you one thing, but it`s not about this post.

    My question is...How many Group Policy Settings and Preferences do we have TODAY?

    Is there a exact number of group policy in Windows Systems? Like;

    Windows Server 2003 we have...

    Windows Server 2008 we have...

    Windows Vista

    Windows 7

    I know its kind of strange....but I'm just curious about that and I don't know if you guys of Group Policy Team can answer me...

    Thanks in advance for that and Ill be waiting a positive or negative answer...
