I have strange issue on of my server, its Window server 2003 R2 64bit SP2 fully patched up.

The server is located in Turkey and we need to set the time Zone to Turkey (GMT +02:00) every time I change it to Turkey time zone log off then log back in again it will revert back to UK.

The server is domain controller (DC, FS, DNS, DHCP, RRAS, SQL)

I have also tried amending the time zone from command line still the same issue.

Btw I am making the changes with domain admin account.

Any help would be great please,

    Did you check the BIOS for a time zone setting? Try changing that first and then changing it in the OS.
