    GPO Refresh

    Hi Folks,

    Quick question. I have notice that some of the client machines don't seem to pull down the GPO's or they error. Is there a way that I could logon to the machine as an admin and maybe run a script that would get the machine to pull down the policies (maybe deleting thetm and forcing an update).

    I deployed a wallpaper via GPO and not all of the machines have picked it up and some of the students are still bringing down the old wallpaper. The machine all switch off at the end of the day, so have had a change to reboot etc.

    Any ideas whould be great.

    Regards

    Stuart

    Log on to the pc, launch an administrative CMD Prompt, type gpupdate /force /sync

    should do the job.

    Thanks Simon. Is there a way to auto answer the GPUpdate so I can run the script and it will automatically say yes to the reboot?

    Try using Remote Group Policy Update Gpupdate | Specops Gpupdate

    Its free and fantastic. Been using it for years. It will force an update and reboot the machines for you.

    Yeah, if you use the /boot argument, that will do it, e.g.:
    gpupdate /force /boot

    /Boot Causes a computer restart after the Group Policy settings are applied. This is required for those Group Policy client-side extensions that do not process policy on a background update cycle but do process policy at computer startup. Examples include computer-targeted Software Installation. This option has no effect if there are no extensions called that require a restart.
