In Configuration Manager, the ResetPolicy method, resets the policy on a client. As a result, the next policy request will receive a full policy instead of merely the change in policy since the last policy request.
The following syntax is simplified from Managed Object Format (MOF) code and defines the method.
UInt32 ResetPolicy( UInt32 uFlags );
- Data type: UInt32Qualifiers: [in]Flags identifying the
policy. Possible values are:
The next policy request will be for a full policy instead of the change in policy since the last policy request.
The existing policy will be purged completely.
A UInt32 data type that is 0 to indicate success or non-zero to indicate failure.
Indiscriminate calling of this method could have adverse affects. For example, if you purge the existing policy (ulFlags = 1) software distribution programs could be run more than once. If the request is for full policy (ulFlags = 0), you could generate unnecessary network traffic.
