Active Directory 2008 - unable to see "group Policy Update" from Group Policy update MMC

I have 2 separate domains 1 running at Windows Serevr 2012 and the other at Windows Server 2008 (not R2)
From the Group Policy MMC  I can right click a container and have the option  "Group Policy Update" option so I can push the new policy to the servers contained in this container.
On the 2008 Domain, I do not have this option on a container that contains a Policy below it. I have attached a screen shot from the 2008 Domain to see what I am seeing.
How do I turn this on ? I have cliked on Advanced in the snap in and still does not show it ?

You can do it only on Group Policy Management Console runing on:

With Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8, you can remotely refresh Group Policy settings for all computers in an organizational unit (OU) from one central location by using the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC).

Your Screeshot is from Server 2008. You have to run GP MMC from windows 8, 8.1, 10 server 2012 or 2012 R2 to have option to force group policy update.

Ah I see so I need to upgrade a DC/server to those versions ...sorry understand now is there no way to force to all OU's unless I upgrade to a later  version ? I just have to wait for replication to happen ?
