Gpupdate not updating Xxx granny chat room
So I’ve finally got round to writing a post I can simply reference!This is something that hasn’t changed since I was doing Windows 2000 exams 🙂 The default interval between policies being applied is 90 minutes, plus or minus a figure between 0 and 30 minutes.(This avoids all user and computer policies being seen and applied at the same time.So between 60 minutes and 120 minutes if you are going to wait.
If you set it to ‘0’ the policy updates every 7 seconds (NEVER DO THIS!
This compares the currently applied GPO to the GPO that is located on the domain controllers.
If nothing has changed since the last time the GPO was applied, then the GPO is skipped.
When you make a change to a group policy, you may need to wait two hours (90 minutes plus a 30 minute offset) before you see any changes on the client computers.
Even then, some changes will not take effect until after a reboot of the computer.
