You can add computers to an organizational unit. When the computers restart, the client software installation process begins. When users log on to the computers, the client software installation process completes. The group policy update, however, is not instantaneous, so it may take time for this policy to propagate. The procedure, however, contains the commands that you can run on the client computers to update the policy on demand.
To add computers to the organizational unit and install software
On the Windows Taskbar, click Start > Programs > Administrative Tools > Active Directory Users and Computers.
In the Active Directory Users and Computers window, in the console tree, locate one or more computers to add to the organizational unit that you created for GPO installation.
Computers first appear in the Computers organizational unit.
Drag and drop the computers into the organization unit that you created for the installation.
Close the Active Directory Users and Computers window.
To quickly apply the changes to the client computers (for testing), open a command prompt on the client computers.
Type one of the following commands, and then press Enter.
