Remote GPUpdate in Windows Server 2012


A nice new feature of Windows Server 2012 is the ability to trigger “GPUpdate /force”, remotely. You have two options :

1) With GPMC.msc :



2) PowerShell : Invoke-GPUpdate.

Under the hood, this will create a scheduled task to run a “GPUpdate” on the impacted computers. This feature is retroactive from Windows Vista SP2.
