Group Policy only works when manually initiated from the client.
Posted on 2010-09-07
Hi guys, hope you are all well.
We have a situation in our environment, where group policies are only applying to our workstations when we visit a workstation and manually inititate a gpupdate /force command.
In our Group Policy management console, we have left the default of 90 minutes for a group policy refresh be maintained, so we would have thought that this would kick in after or around this 90 minute interval.
Even after a reboot of client machines, which I thought would have trigged a group policy update, clients dont receive group policy, unless, you manually fire off gpupdate /force.
We would love some help on trying to identify what is going on in our 2003/xp AD environment.
It seems like there is some issue with the domain controllers initiating a push of group policy to our workstations.
This happens on both client and servers in our environment.
We have checked many workstations in our environment, and verified DNS, domain settings etc.
Any help on this greatly appreciated.
