group policy update user configuration for not logged user RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all.

    Simply I need to perform gpupdate /target:user but not for logged user. I have to update gpo of different user.

    Reason is that under user I am executing Internet Explorer as (Run As) different user (not currently logged one). Therefore Internet Explorer has not updated GPO.

    So is there a way how to update group policy user configuration of specific user?

    Thank you very much!

  • It is not possible. “Run as” only means that you run the program with the privilege of the user. The user session is not started actually.

  • My idea was to somehow specifi user account for GP update based on SID of desired account. You know every account has unique SID in registry. This is just concept but I don't know how to make this work. I have no clue.
