Hi, maximvex,

you can type "gpupdate" without quote in DOS-Prompt if you want to manually force replicate.  When you change the policy on one of them, it will automatically update throughout rest of the AD in other machines.  (It is just a timing only; I don't quite remember how long it will automatically update.  It could be 5-15min; I could be wrong.)

Hope this answer your question!

Gpupdate
I am so pleased that Windows 2000's Secedit is now obsolete, the syntax was horrendous.  Gpupdate completely replaces Secedit on Server 2003 and XP.  Mostly I just use Gpupdate as a simple command on its own, occasionally I tweak it with the following switches:

/target:computer  or /target:user applies only the user or computer section of your policy.  Normally I would use plain Gpupdate without the optional target switch.

/logoff   Useful for settings that do not apply until the user logs on again.

/boot   Handy for configuration which need the computer to restart.

/force reapplies all settings
