question on gpupdate on remote pc RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a question about group policy.

     

    I often need to run gpupdate  /force on remote pc’s.   There may be a user account that gets a policy change.  I have always remote into the users session with their permission and did the gpupdate /force.

     

    Some weeks there may be 10 or 15 users I need to do this for.

     

    I have in the past been told using “Psexec.exe \\RemoteComputerName Gpupdate.exe /Target:User /force”  would not work as it would not apply the group policy change to that user on the computer it would only apply changes that would be relative to my account as I am running it as my administrator account from my computer.

    Is that correct and if so is there a way to do it remotely?

     

    Thanks very much

  • Hi Tnetplus,

     

    Kindly ensure the remote pc's have task scheduler started.

    services.msc > task scheduler > right click start

    ensure client windows firewall is disable.
