We have a Windows 2012 Datacenter server with several virtual machines running Windows 2012 Standard and Windows 2008 R2 Standard. Often if I stop one of the virtual machines I can't get it to restart unless I run gpupdate /force. It doesn't happen all the time but it does happen more often than not.
