Don’t! Export GPOs with RSAT and later import into the new domain. Custom permissions and OU association have to be made manually, make sure you document or have access to the old domain to make the proper changes. This will be a good oportunity to review and improve computers & users OUs with role based access control and least-privilege access models.
