    Yes. Open a cmd and type smc -updateconfig

    smc -updateconfig
    Updates the configuration of the Client by forcing a heartbeat, thus pulling the latest configuration from the Management Server.
    This does not always change the "last check-in time" displayed in the SEPM console -- that value changes only when a client's status changes.
    Heartbeats do not necessarily cause a status change, so the value of this may not always change.

     

    Available Command-Line Options for Smc.exe

    to forceful update the config use the command above, else client will check with SEPM on its heartbeat to get the new policy, there is no manual intervention needed.

    You need to make your clients in PUSH mode to have the policy immediately.
