I have a GPO with a lot of different settings configured. How do I copy it so
that I can make one or 2 changes and then rename it. i.e. I have GPO-1 linked
to OU-1 , I'd like to configure GPO-2 which is similar to GPO-1 apart from
some slight changes and assign it to GPO-2. I use the GPO management console
- this has a copy facility - but does not appear to actually copy a GPO and
rename it. Any ideas much appreciated.

You can use GPMC to do that.
