is peyton list dating anyone - Computer not updating group policy

Despite the name “Authenticated Users” actually includes both logged on users but also computer objects from either the same domain or a trusted domain.This means that a default GPO will be applied to all users and computers located in some OU to which the GPO are linked somewhere above.

GPMC allows you to update the GPO settings on multiple computers, but there are a few disadvantages associated with this approach.

First, GPMC will process GPO updates on all the computers in the selected organizational unit.

There are times when you need to remotely refresh the group policy on a group of computers, bypassing the 90 minute ( 30 minute offset) default interval.

Let’s look at 3 ways to achieve that, two of the methods require Server 2012 or Windows 8 with the remote administration tools to initiate the refresh, and the 3rd method can be initiated from Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2. Server 2012 introduced the functionality to remotely refresh Group Policy settings for all computers in an OU from the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC).

This will run a GPUpdate /force on all computer objects in the OU selected and any child OUs and will refresh both the computer and user policies. This method, requires Server 2012, or Windows 8 with the remote server administration tools.

The following command will retrieve the computer objects from the Servers OU and run the Invoke-GPUpdate against them.Be aware, this method will display the command prompt with “Updating Policy” on the computer objects you run it against. If you’re not using Server 2012, you can still achieve the above with fairly little effort using Powershell to generate a list of computers and PSEXEC to run the GPUpdate command.So bear this in mind if you’re running this against your desktops or laptops with users logged in. The following Powershell will get you a list of computers from the Servers OU and export them to a text file on the C drive. I’ve added a dummy first entry to the text file, for some reason PSExec fails the first entry so this gets around that.Here is our Domain network design: Windows 2008 Standard AD Servers w/ DNS, DHCP, GMPC, and the whole works....Clients are Win7 Professional (All within 6 months old) Same Domain Same Network Same Building Happens to several users...They include the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC), a Power Shell cmdlet, the PSexec executable and the Windows Management Instrumentation command line (WMIC). Windows Server 2012 introduces a new feature for updating Group Policy Object (GPO) settings on multiple remote computers.
