  • GP processing times

    Is there a tool (i.e. script etc) or perhaps a built in way of determining how long it takes for a particular computer and/or user to process all GPOs? Ultimately what I want to be able to do is move my test computer account and test user account to the different OUs and determine how long it takes for all group policy processing to take place.

    Use a stopwatch.

    gpupdate.exe /force will force the update of GPOs.

    gpresult.exe will tell you the last time computer and user GPOs were applied.

    One thing to remember is that depending on your network, domain, and site configuration, the time it takes to apply GPOs may differ depending on the location.

      Re: GP processing times

      Okay, since I've posted two threads about GP and both times you have come back with a smart remark I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt that you are just naturally a sarcastic kind of guy.

      "Use a stopwatch" - classic! You actually got a laugh out of me.

      To answer my own question I found a utility called gptime at the following site that accomplishes very well what I am looking for.

      So until next time Jason, thanks again for your reply. I'm sure we'll talk again soon.

        I wasn't being sarcastic at all. Use a stopwatch. I've used a stopwatch in many instances for various tests, including Citrix logon times. I'm sorry you thought I was being sarcastic. Simple questions can sometimes be answered by simple solutions. Not every problem needs to be answered with a new software installation, registry hacks, or some other expensive solution.

          Bboyd, I would be interested to learn the results of the software AND the stopwatch method. Could you please post both results back here when you have finished timing them.

          I am curious to see how much difference there is between the manual and software methods. Thanks.

          2 2 was 1 2.
