Any body used SPecops GPUPDATE
I came across this bit of software while looking for a way to report on all the GPO's that have been set and best of all it is free.
Specops Gpupdate makes your life as an administrator MUCH easier providing operations such as update of Group Policy Objects (gpupdate or secedit /refreshpolicy), remote restart, wake on lan (WOL) and remote shutdown.
All operations are available in the Active Directory Users and Computers interface and through Searches of Active Directory. Even entire OUs can be selected.
After performing a gpupdate or secedit /refreshpolicy, remote restart, wake on lan (WOL) or remote shutdown, you will get instant feedback in a graph.
If you have used it can you let me know if it is any good.

We use it and it's very handy. I've come accross a couple of niggles that cause it to log events in the log on the server but other than that it functions very well.
One error relates to RIS so if you don't have that you wont see it.
The other event SOURCE: DefaultDomain occurs when you right click a non computer object in Active Directory.

Been using it here for a while too.

WoW thanks, didn't know this little gem existed. I spent ages scripting a group machine restart and this software does it all for you. The gpupdate is also handy when testing software and troubleshooting group policy.

Oh i've also recently noticed another error regarding WDS since installing GPupdate, the build still works but i receive an Event 522
Anyone else using RIS/WDS see this?

Sorry to revive an old thread, but didnt see the point in making a new one:
It looks like an interesting app, but ive got a few questions before i take the plunge:
- As it adds stuff to the AD MMC, are there any problems that could arise from that?
- And i take it that it needs installing on each machine that i want those functions on?
Thanks in advance.
