This article explains a quick tip to check whether a newly created GPO replicated to all the Domain Controllers for that domain or not. When you create a new GPO, that GPO must be replicated to all other domain controllers of that domain. There is a quick way to check this using GPOTool.exe:
- gpotool.exe /gpo:GPO_Name_Here /verbose
The above command you need to run on the domain controller on which you created this GPO. If the policy has replicated to all the domain controllers, you will see a “Policy Ok” message. If it has not replicated yet, the tool will list the names of the domain controllers who have not received this GPO yet.
