Updating gpo

This is why Microsoft only allows admins to perform a group policy update on an OU and not the entire domain.

However, it has been tested on over 10,000 computers at once with a single (presumably very powerful) domain controller, so it is pretty safe if all you are updating is a shortcut or something along those lines.

The “Semi-Annual Channel (Targeted)” readiness level is the default option that every device is enrolled out-of-the-box, and this level receives upgrades immediately after a new version of Windows 10 releases.When you are finished, configure the Group Policy Object (GPO) on the domain controller and import the certificate file and the supporting Windows Update policies.Patch Manager signs all third-party packages with the software publishing certificate.While this feature should not be used in day to day operation it is certainly nice know it exist out of the box in case you need to quickly make a policy change.A more detailed version of this post can be found at How to configure and use “Group Policy Update” in Windows 8 via the Group Policy Central web site.
