"Allow time zone redirection" is supported on 2003 and newer.

Create a GPO and link it to the OU where your TS is located.

I recomend you to create a new OU and place your TS that should have this policy in the newly created OU. Since the policy you link is for Computers (not a User policy), all computer objects in this OU will get this policy.

Start > Administrative tools > Group Policy Management > Right Click the new OU > "Create a GPO in this domain, and link it here".

GPO setting: Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Terminal Services\Terminal Server\Device and Resource Redirection

Enable "Allow time zone redirection"

As long as all your client are on RDP v.5.1 or newer (assuming RDP and not ICA) and you have linked the GPO created to the OU where the TS is located this should work.

You can run a RSoP from a domain controller with GPMC installed to see what GPOs a user get (you have to "tick" select Computer settings). Or you can log onto the TS with a user and run "gpresult /v" from cmd. Then you will be able to see what is applied and what is not.
