Refreshing Group Policy

In previous versions of Windows, if you wanted to force a refresh of Group Policy for a computer, you had to run the Gpupdate.exe command locally on the computer targeted by the GPO. This made it difficult for administrators to ensure that any new Group Policy settings they configured were applied immediately to the computers targeted by the GPO.

Beginning with Windows Server 2012, however, you can now remotely force a refresh of Group Policy. This remote refresh capability allows you to update Group Policy for all computers within an OU with GPOs linked to it. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Right-click on the desired OU in the GPMC, and select Group Policy Update.

  2. Read the confirmation prompt, and click Yes if you want Group Policy to be refreshed for computers targeted by the GPOs linked to the OU:

When the progress bar on the Remote Group Policy update Results dialog box indicates Completed, Group Policy update will be forced for all computers in the OU and also for computers in any OUs beneath the OU.

Note

Remote refresh and Windows PowerShell

You can also use Windows PowerShell to perform a remote refresh of Group Policy.

Note

Remote refresh for users and computers

When a remote refresh of Group Policy is performed, both user and computer policies will be refreshed on the targeted computers.
