Enforcing the group policy,

Suppose that in a Windows machine you have set up a group policy and then you would like enforcing the group policy immediately , what command should you use?

I believe that once you set up the group policy there might be a delay after you click2 on the policy, so I guess that you need type a command to enforce it immediately.

kecoak,

sometimes a computer policy will take a couple of reboots to enforce though - just takes a little while to modify registry settings
