Automatic force of User GPO at Boot

Hi all

Im fairly new to GPO's and am stumbling around a little, can someone help with this question

I have a Default domain GPO that sets the GP refresh interval for 30 minutes with an offset of 10 minutes set within the Computer Configuration section of the GPO

My problem is that we have a few manual registry merges that occur on users PC's that change HKEY_CURRENT_USER settings.

The backround refresh is applying to these pc's as I can see the SCECLI event occuring, however the reset of the settings that the manual registry file changes is not occuring.

Is this because I also need to set the USER CONFIGURATION backround refresh interval to be 30 minutes?

I know the setting wihtin the GPO is fine, because if I force an update i.e gpudate /force. It resets the setting.

Many thanks

You answered your own question.

You have to set it in both places if you want it at 30 minutes

You might also be having problems with the fact that the users hive is pre loaded before the GPO is run.  Thus only come into effect after the next logon.

you would need to script a refresh of the users hive in the GPO script with this:


regedit -s merge.reg
rundll32.exe user32.dll,UpdatePerUserSystemParameters
