a domain computer can't change time zone in windows 7

Dear Sir

I want to change the time zone in domain computer, i give the user full permission to change the time zone in the group policy in the domain controller but still can't change the time zone.
And the same problem when using the administrator local account i can't change the time zone
is there a registry key can i change to change the time zone ? or any other idea??
Regards

time should be automatically updated from the domain controllers.
However, if you ened to do it manually then you will need to run an elevated command prompt if you want to use the comman line (right click on command prompt and select Run As Administrator) you will need to do this even if logged in as Administrator.

Alternatively restart the Windows Time service.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

w32tm /resync /rediscover

changing the time zone is done in control panel under Clock, Language and Region

Glen KnightCommented:
apologies, I read that you wanted to sync the computer with the server, ignore the w32tm command.

dear sir , i need to change the time zone , when clicking "change time zone" it give me that i need permission but i am sure that i give the permission to change the time zone for the users.
i don't need to sync the computer with the server, because the time zone is different between the server and this domain computer.

only an administrator can change the time zone on a Windows 7 computer.

i can change the date and time but can't change the time zone, and when changing the date and time,if i restart the machine, the old date and time return because the time zone not correct with the current time zone

Glen KnightCommented:
There are obvious restrictions in place, probably being applied by a group policy? It should look like this

I did say it was more than likely down to a permission or group policy issue.

at least you have the problem resolved.
