There is no setting that is directly available to set the time zone in group policy. But this can be done with a script set through a group policy linked to the domain/OU. Timezone.exe in the Windows 2003 resource kit can be used in the script.

See the related links:
Timezone.exe can be downloaded from:


The link below provides information on how to script the timezone.exe.
Please see the section "Use the Daylight Time Update Utility (Timezone.exe)"


Here is the link that helps to change the time zone using Visual Basic:
