Hi All,


It's been nearly two years since i've used a Windows 2000 machine.  But it seems "GPUPDATE /Force" is only availible to Windows 2003.


Is there a way to force Group Policy to be reapplied to a Windows 200 Server?



Thanks

You use SECEDIT /REFRESHPOLICY MACHINE_POLICY /ENFORCE and SECEDIT /REFRESHPOLICY USER_POLICY /ENFORCE in Windows 2000.
