I have several users that work from home but their systems were setup to be in our domain. When they change their password (via a 3rd party tool that updates our domain controller from a web interface) and then try to run a gpupdate /force it will not complete so their local machine doesn't know that the password as been changed.

I do understand that it has to do with the DNS not finding the domain controller. However, I am hoping there is a way to force this to process sucessfully through a batch file or something that they can run once the have the VPN connection active.

Has anyone else already came across this? How did you resolve it?
