GPUPDATE /FORCE - ISSUE
Posted on 2011-09-07
Hi it may well be that due to intermitant issues with my 'Eval' Win 2008 32bit that 'gpupdate /force' doesn't appear to work as advised.
What I wanted to know was when making amendments/changes to my DC/GPO I would normally do: gpupdate /force instead of doing a reboot although sometimes it prompted a 'logoff' - is this correct?
While I made changes to my GPO as above I was also 'STILL' logged onto a test host pc and so I ran 'also': gpupdate /force and sometimes it prompted a 'logoff yes or no' - is this correct or should I actually 'restart' instead of just logoff?
I have though 'restarted' both 'server and host pc' but never was successfull installing on host pc the GPO/Deploy Software although by accident I was succesful installing it on bother 'Server and host pc' at different times, but not got a clue how I did it!!
The only thing I can think of is that I gave the host pc 'admin privileges' I think and it worked but again not sure yet until Ive completed my re-install again as had intermitant services keep stopping which I think was the real problem!
Should I put in priority order in the GPO Server the GPO order ie:
By default I see:
Default Domain Controller
My added GPO - which I moved up to the top in the list - Is this what I should do?
Can anyone shed any light?
