If you've been changing settings for a long time, you probably didn't notice that the default state of each policy is "Not configured." This means you can quickly sort the policies to identify the ones that have been modified so that you can reset their values to the original defaults. You'll need to perform this task for the "Administrative Templates" in the "Computer Configuration" and "User Configuration" sections.
It is a win7 ultimate x64 machine. The machine was in a domain where it got those group policy settings. Now it has left the domain but it still receives the settings from the group policy. For example, the power options. I set a certain power option but soon it will be reset to another power option which is endorsed by the domain.
I am running CES/CEP in Windows Authentication for enrolling servers and workstations for machine certificates. Group Policy is employed to configure enrollment policy domain-wide. Most of my servers are properly getting enrollment policy updates. running certutil -Policy shows good LastUpdate and NextUpdate fields and the path to the policy cache is good (C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\X509Enrollment\)
I have tried clearing the policy cache with certutil -f -policyserver * -policycache delete which completes successfully. I have also simply deleted the policy cache file directly. However, the policy does not regenerate on gpupdate /force or a system reboot. No policy cache file is recreated in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\X509Enrollment\ Of course, these systems are not correctly polling CEP for policy updates and I am unable to request machine certificates for them through the MMC.
If the "stale" policy cache is already there, it is unchanged by any kind of gpupdate or attempts to use MMC for requesting certificates of any kind. If the policy cache is not present (because I deleted it), it is not recreated either.
However, if I copy the policy cache file from a computer with identical certificate-related permissions and paste it into the cache location, MMC works on the formerly problematic computer. What I don't know is whether that copied-in cache will still go "stale" or start being properly updated at normal intervals.
This cached number can be set through the policy : Interactive logon: Number of previous logons to cache (in case domain controller is not available) security policy setting under Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\Security Options.
If you configure the Interactive logon: Number of previous logons to cache (in case domain controller is not available) setting to 0, which disables the local caching of logon information.The impact is that users cannot log on to any devices if there is no domain controller available to authenticate them.

If deleting the policy folders on the Microsoft Domain Controller (s) does not resolve the issue, clear the locally cached policies on each XenApp Server in the farm followed by running a gpupdate /force on each server.The locally cached policies are located in the following locations on the XenApp Server: (Delete the files and folders in each location but not the actual folder that contains them).C:\ProgramData\Citrix\GroupPolicyC:\ProgramData\CitrixCseCacheC:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\Citrix\GroupPolicyC:\Windows\System32\GroupPolicy\User\Citrix\GroupPolicy
The easiest way to clear the GPO cache in Windows 10 is to run the gpupdate /force command. Once you have made the changes, restart your computer. If you do not want your changes to take effect immediately, you can try hard resetting Group Policy Objects. To do this, you need to delete the entire GPO settings folder. This process will force the GPOs to re-apply themselves and will remove all of their cached data.
Once your PC restarts, the registry. The pol file will be recreated, which should fix the Group Policy error in Windows 10. Many users reported that this solution fixed their problem with corrupted local group policy, so try it out.
To update the group membership of the computer, the solution is simple : first, purge the cached Kerberos tickets for the computer account and then instruct the Group Policy Client to refresh the policies. The Group Policy Client will then contact a domain controller. As the Kerberos cache is empty, the computer will have to deal with the domain controller to get a new Kerberos token. The provided token will have a new PAC structure with the computer group membership updated.
The computer object group membership is normally evaluated at the boot. There is no refresh. The only way I have found is to reset the Kerberos ticket linked to the computer object to force a kerberos ticket re-creation.Thank you
The main reason people follow this article is to troubleshoot cached Windows credentials, Active Directory credentials, domain issues, or problems with apps like Internet Explorer and Outlook. Removing the passwords from Windows allows it to reset and fix authentication issues.
1. Log into a domain controller or a machine running the RSAT tools, Start > Administrative Tools > Group Policy Management > Either edit an existing group policy, or create a new one that is linked to your COMPUTERS.
Don't use this policy if you enable slow-link detection for Windows XP and Win2K clients because this feature relies on cached profiles when a slow link is detected. You can also disable cached copies of roaming profiles directly in the registry by creating a registry value named DeleteRoamingCache of type REG_DWORD and setting it to 1 under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System registry subkey.
In addition to generating the resulting policy values the Citrix Group Policy Engine Service creates several cache and helper files: actual policy settings are stored as GPF files in %ProgramData%\CitrixCseCache. Rollback and RSoP information is written to Rollback.gpf and Rsop.gpf respectively in %ProgramData%\Citrix\GroupPolicy.
Until Windows 10 version 1809 there is essentially no real policy refresh like we know from the GPO, where security policies are enforced regularly without special configuration. GPO registry policies are enforced every 90+offset minutes (when the group policy registry processing is configured accordingly). So, MDM policies are only enforced when a change occurs on the Intune service side.
Triggering the scheduled 8h interval manually via Computer Management > Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > EnterpriseMgmt > GUID > Schedule #3 created by enrollment client, I see instant reset to the policy configured values!
Local Group Policy is stored in the %windir%\system32\grouppolicy directory (usually, C:\windows\system32\grouppolicy). Each policy you create gets its own folder, named with the security ID (SID) of the corresponding user object.
The HTTP Caching policy enables you to cache HTTP responses for reuse. Caching these responses speeds up the response time for user requests and reduces the load on the backend. For example, if your backend exposes an endpoint for which the responses to requests are not likely to change, you can reuse the HTTP responses and bypass the backend request processing by using the HTTP Caching policy.
In a cache hit scenario, the HTTP Caching policy searches for the key in the object store and finds that the response to a request is already cached as a stored entry. The request does not proceed any further in the policy chain toward the backend, and the cached response is reused.
When you upgrade a version of the instance that has the HTTP Caching policy configured to use the persistent store, the policy tries to maintain the entries stored by the previous version. However in a worst-case scenario, the entries in the cache are invalidated and the cache is re-populated when new requests arrive. This manipulation of the entries in the cache occurs automatically and is invisible to the user.
The age header indicates the time (in seconds) elapsed since the origin of the cached response specified in the date header. This header is calculated by the policy and added to each response that is retrieved from the cache.
The invalidate header, if configured in the HTTP Caching policy, invalidates the entries in the cache, thereby causing the request to be processed again. You specify the name of the header in the Invalidation Header configuration to turn on the option. The value of the header can take only one of the following options:invalidate
The Broker Service maintains a cache of the names of users/groups and machines in use by the site. By default, name information is obtained periodically from Active Directory and the cache refreshed automatically.
Triggering a cache refresh with this cmdlet ensures up-to-date name information is present in the cache after user/group or machine accounts are known to have changed and you need to see those changes immediately instead of waiting for the periodic automatic refresh.
I would expect that if ONLY "Enable profile management" and "Delete locally cached profiles on logoff" policies are enabled, it would be enough to get profiles deleted on after logoff.However, this works fine ONLY when users are using a TEMPLATE profile Citrix policy (i.e. "Path to the template profile") but if LOCAL profiles are used on servers, then the "Delete locally cached profiles on logoff" is not working.Is it normal behavior or I am missing something? 2b1af7f3a8
