Gpupdate not updating computer policy
In Windows Server 2012, Group Policy added a Starter GPO called, Group Policy Remote Update Firewall Ports.
Link the GPO to your domain at a higher precedence than the Default Domain GPO, and then use it to configure all the computers in the domain to enable a remote Group Policy refresh.I think the most common problem is Group Policy settings not taking effect immediately.You change a setting and reboot the machine, but the change doesn't seem to show immediately.I am disabling the password complexity the server is a TS and all clients are thin clients, this should still apply should it?I didnt have to update each individual client before with other policys.When the Resultant Set of Policy settings does not conform to your expectations, a best practice is to first verify that the computer or user has received the latest policy settings.
In previous versions of Windows, this was accomplished by having the user run on their computer.
From this forum I found Group Policy Mangement and have been using it since, applying the odd policy, but without having changed any setting the latest policies I have created are not taking an effect.
ive use gpudate and gpudate /force and restarted the server but there arent taking effect, could some point me in the right direction as to what might be causing this?
Not modifing either, I dont think, within group policy management console, I created User GPO and added the user group, ie accountants, charity workers and others within this.
I was defining in the Controller Policy as you said but looked in Domain Policy and was not defined in there, I defined it so it matched the Controller Policy and the commanded gpupdate /force on the server and the Password can now be set without the complexity.
The latter might become important when you work with roaming profiles and start deploying Vista.
