HOWTO: Add Computer to Group without Restart

Credit where credit is due, this is taken directory from the blog below and is documented here only so I can easily find it again in the future.


Let’s say you add a computer to a group but you want that computer to gain that membership but can’t restart the system.  What do you do?

From an administrator command prompt type: klist –li 0x3e7 purge followed by gpupdate /force


This will clear the Kerberos ticket and request a new one which will force new group enumeration.

A handy trick to be sure!
