Hi,

O/S: Windows server 2008 R2
Function: Terminal Server

Issue:
Users are located at 3 different time zones (Melb, Syd, Bris). All users on the terminal server are using Melb time. When timezone is changed on the terminal server, it changes for everyone.

Attempted fixes:
- added GPO as stated on http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc783386%28WS.10%29.aspx
- Tried changing time manually
- Tried from different accounts
- Tried Net time to local read-only DC

All fixes not working.

Please assist.

The technet article appears to be a configuration to allow term services to calculate the time on the server based on the users time zone ie. in an application where a time stamp is important such as accounting the user's time zone information can update the server's time stamp accordingly, this however may not change the actual time on the server, in the past i have used Casablanca time zone for GMT and had all clients time zones set local. the server time is always -0 time zone and adjustments were made based on client settings, for instance East Coast time in the states is -5 hours. Thus the time on the server remained a constant and the time stamps within applications were at -5 hours.

it's not an answer, but hope it helps a little.
