    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)";en-us;317211

    Here is the link that helps to change the time zone using Visual Basic:;EN-US;221542
