User Group Policy Update - From Admin Command Prompt
Posted on 2010-09-22
I have a domain running Vista workstations and Server 2008 DC's across 3 sites, all in the same domain.
I need to be able to force a GPupdate for a specific user (the logged on user) but they are restricted from accessing the command prompt.
If I open the command prompt as domain admin and run a gpupdate /force it seems to only update the policy for the computer and the ADMIN user, not the currently logged on user.
Same thing with rsop. It reports on the computer policy and the DOMAIN\Administrator policy rather than the currently logged on user.
Without the domain user being able to access the command prompt, how can I force an update of their user GPO?
