Script Description

Refreshes computer or user Group Policy settings using the ‘gpupdate’ command. The script is designed for Windows 10 and 7.

A timeout of 1200 seconds is recommended.

Further Information

During execution, ‘gpupdate’ sends a number of queries to domain controller. To reduce server overload, the script contains a random wait function which delays its execution from 0 up to maximum 600 seconds.
Maximum value of random script execution delay can be set in input parameter ‘MaximumDelayInSeconds’.
It is recommended that the device be restarted for some applied policies to take effect.


  • The script should not be concurrently executed on many devices which point to the same domain controller.
