This morning I was reading that in SCCM 2012 if you have a Windows 7 and above client, the SCCM machine & user policy is refreshed when you lock and unlock a desktop (Windows key + L)…. I wasn’t aware of this. So I thought I’d try it out…
It appears that the material I was reading isn’t completely correct….
In my testing, I monitored the PolicyAgent log and found:
• Machine policy refresh is NOT triggered when you lock and unlock your desktop
• User policy refresh IS triggered immediately when you unlocked your desktop, however there is no user policy action when you lock the desktop
