gpupdate /force prompts for a reboot
Posted on 2010-09-15
I'm running the command "gpupdate /force" on my login script. I get this error:
User Policy Refresh has completed.
Computer Policy Refresh has completed.
Certain Computer policies are enabled that can only run during startup.
OK to Reboot?. (Y/N)
I've tried hitting "yes" but I keep getting the same error. It appears to be a rights issue because I logged in as me with network administrator rights and I did not get the error. I did narrow it down to something in the Default Domain Policy. If I run the gpudate without the /force option it finishes and closes, but I'm not sure what the repercussions are of taking off that switch. Ideas?
