Refresh Group Policy by forcing Group Policy update (gpupdate) remotely on multiple computers |
This action runs gpupdate on remote computers forcing GPO update. It works similar to running "gpupdate /force" remotely to tell Windows to update Group Policy.
The normal Group Policy rerun cycle on workstations is about 90 minutes. In order to force a quicker update to apply some important setting on managed computers, you have to issue a Group Policy update command, commonly known as gpupdate command (which is a part of the Group Policy command line toolset.) Action1 provides a quick shortcut via this free tool to force remote gpupdate on multiple computers at once without using any scripts or batch files.
