Start Computer not updating group policy

Computer not updating group policy

If a Group Policy Object should be applied to an end user this user must have two specific allow permissions: READ and APPLY GROUP POLICY.

Despite the name “Authenticated Users” actually includes both logged on users but also computer objects from either the same domain or a trusted domain.

This means that a default GPO will be applied to all users and computers located in some OU to which the GPO are linked somewhere above.

This method supports a Group Policy refresh for Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows 8.1 Preview, Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista clients.

When you use this method, there is a random delay of up to 10 minutes, with the view of decreasing load on network traffic- this random delay cannot be configured when using the GUI.

The Microsoft hotfix MS16-072 (KB 3159398) released June 14 2016 will break fundamental parts of traditional Group Policy processing.

After the hotfix is installed on a client computer no Group Policy objects that use security filtering to user groups will no longer be applied.

Windows Server 2012 Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) has a new feature that allows administrators to remotely force a Group Policy refresh on all computers in an Active Directory (AD) Organizational Unit (OU).
