Morning chaps,

Want to pick your brains on “gpupdate /force” if you have a free moment.

On the our unattended XP SP2 build, there is a (batch) scripted OU move followed by a gpupdate /force.

This seems to have been fine for a while, but is now returning a confirmation prompt:

“Certain computer policies have are enabled that can only run during startup”
“OK to reboot?. <Y/N>”

I’m assuming that there are certain policies that cause this to crop up – eg startup scripts or suchlike.

MS tout gpupdate as a scripting tool, but the potential for the above prompt to crop up is clearly a problem in a script. I can’t find any MS docs on criteria for the prompt appearing, or a built-in way of suppressing it. Feeding “N” from a response file is also not working for me.

Any ideas?

I just ran across this today myself. "gpupdate /force /No" seems to work.
