Domain computer fails GPUpdate /force

By | November 16, 2016



GPUpdate /force doesn’t update the computer policy



There are many, but in THIS case it was due to the registry.pol file needing to be renamed/removed.


Rename (or delete)


Run Gpedit.msc as Adminstrator.
GPUpdate fail
Under Administrative Templates change any setting and then change it back. This will recreate the Registry.pol file.

Run gpupdate /force from a DOS prompt and verify that both computer and user policies were successfully updated.
