    Force GPO update from DC?

    As Iím running a Server since long time I know that I can run GPUpdate to initiate policy refresh from the client side itself. I even know how to manipulate the policy refresh interval on the server side. But hereís the problem. Suppose if I have created a critical GPO change and wanted it pushed right away without the user having to do anything. Can anyone of you please tell me how can do it easily.

    Hope you might be aware that some of the GP extensions are not processed during a background refresh. And it may also need a reboot or re-logon followed by GPUpdate. Doesn't default 90 minute refresh interval (with 30 minute offset) work for you?

    Apart from PSExec there are several other ways to carry out a refresh centrally. I know some of the free command-line utilities such as a .Net .exe and one using PowerShell here:
