Syntax

GPUPDATE /?

GPUPDATE [/boot] [/force] [/logoff] [/target:value] [/wait:value]


Parameters

none.


Switches
/? (NTXP)
Displays help.
/boot (NTXP)
Restarts the computer after the refresh has completed. This is required for those Group Policy client-side extensions that do not process on a background refresh cycle but that do process when the computer starts up, such as computer Software Installation. This option has no effect if there are no extensions called that require the computer to be restarted.
/force (NTXP)
Ignores all processing optimizations and reapplies all settings.
/logoff (NTXP)
Logs off after the refresh has completed. This is required for those Group Policy client-side extensions that do not process on a background refresh cycle but that do process when the user logs on, such as user Software Installation and Folder Redirection. This option has no effect if there are no extensions called that require the user to log off.
/target:value (NTXP)
Processes only the Computer settings or the current User settings. By default, both the computer settings and the user settings are processed. Valid value is:
/wait:value (NTXP)
Number of seconds that policy processing waits to finish. The default is 600 seconds. 0 means "no wait"; -1 means "wait indefinitely."
