Policy availability on client computer lagging after machine added to filter
I have a workflow that adds a computer to a filter then runs an update configuration task (to make the computer update in hopes of picking up the policy immediately). The workflow seems to be working, but updating configuration is not helping because the computers we are testing on are not getting the policy for a couple minutes. Even if you update config manually on the agent is does not bring down the policy for a couple minutes. After the couple minutes are up you can update config and everything comes down just fine.
The problem is that since the policy isn't available to the machine immediately, automating the update configuration doesn't work to run the task immediately as required.
Any suggestions to make the policy immediately available to the computer upon the computer being added to the filter (so that the automated update configuration in the workflow will cause the desired result instead of essentially causing nothing to happen)?
Note: this worked in 6.x, but we are experiencing this issue in migrating to 7.1.
