Changing Admin Passwords

PSGITech asked
I need to change the local admin account password on multiple member servers and workstations.  I notice in the gpo the options to change passwords are in the computer section of the gpo.  Will the servers and workstations needs to be rebooted for this policy to apply and change the password?

They *should* not need to be rebooted. AD updates are performed on a varying basis, between 5 and 90 minuets. After 90 min. they should be in effect, depending on network traffic, business of the AD and AD clients...

Changing of Local Admin passwords does not required the workstations or member server reboot..
