File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) not always propagating

nick.shadow.moses 1 Reputation point

I am currently using FCI in a very rudimentary way on a small network. Currently I am creating Claim Types, Resource Lists ect. in the Admin Center and am not creating classification rules. I then manually set classifications on folders via the classification tab.

This has been working with no issue for some time.

I am encountering a problem where most PCs on the domain are not receiving newly created claim types and/or updates to the resource lists. I am unsure of how to "push" or "force" an update like with a gpupdate.

After some digging I found a folder in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft called "FCI". the .xml files nested in this directory are what seem to inform file explorer with what I am setting in DAC.

Anyone know how to get this folder and/or its contents to update or rebuild? I've tried deleting, it does not repopulate. I've tried the usual gpupdate/restart ect.

    Hi @nick.shadow.moses

    Currently, there is no such command to force FCI to Domain PC however you can try to Verify that the files are classified and then try creating the classification rules.

    The below article sheds some insights about the whole process and you might get some valuable ideas to achieve your goal.
