Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Coming from Windows/AD, where I can create a group policy that specifies a printer for a certain machine or user, and then FORCE that policy to take effect immediately using gpupdate, I'm having a problem getting the same results on a mac server running Workstation Manager... is there an equivalent command that will "refresh" mac stations?

Logging in while holding down shift (or is it option?) brings up the "refresh/disable your managed preferences", but I'm looking for a way to shove out an updated preference to 100 or so machines all at once.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
