gMSA Install-ADServiceAccount without rebooting

Is there a recommended way to get a group managed service account gMSA working with the Install-ADServiceAccount command on the server you want it working without rebooting? I am finding it will mentioned this error and a reboot is the way for it to catch the latest changed before I can install.

"Install-ADServiceAccount : Cannot install service account. Error Message: '{Access Denied}"

If anyone has the recommended method of getting this updated without a reboot via powershell for example that would be great.
