Summary

Asynchronous Group Policy Setting Causing Delay

Group Policy uses the information collected during preprocessing to apply settings to the computer or user. The Group Policy service cycles through each client-side extension, sharing the previous collected information. Each client-side extension then applies its specific policy settings to the computer or users. During this process, one or more client-side extensions may report problems when attempting to apply policy settings.

Force synchronous Group Policy processing

Most client-side extensions process Group Policy in the background (while the computer starts or the user logs on). However, some client-side extensions require processing before the computer completely starts or before the user logs on (synchronous). These extensions request synchronous processing from the Group Policy service and apply their policy settings on the next restart. The Folder Redirection and Software installation client-side extensions are known for this behavior. Reboot the computer to force a synchronous refresh.
