Updated: June 17, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can use this procedure to manually refresh Group Policy on the local computer. When Group Policy is refreshed, if certificate autoenrollment is configured and functioning correctly, the local computer is autoenrolled a certificate by the certification authority (CA).

noteNote
Group Policy is automatically refreshed when you restart the domain member computer, or when a user logs on to a domain member computer. In addition, Group Policy is periodically refreshed. By default, this periodic refresh is performed every 90 minutes with a randomized offset of up to 30 minutes.

Membership in Administrators, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure.

  1. Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then press ENTER. The Command Prompt window opens.

  2. Type gpupdate, and then press ENTER.
