How would one export all of the user rights assignments from one Windows Server 2008 box and import them on another. Neither would be on a domain so this would just be local security policy.

Just had to right click on enough stuff :-)

You can export by right-clicking on Security Settings in secpol.msc and selecting export. This creates an INF of the User Rights Assignments which can be imported using the same method on another computer only selecting Import instead.

@AndyArismendi Thanks, it helped me. However, is there any way to do it in CMD? (or should we remove command-line tag from question?) – Jet Jul 23 '14 at 17:16
