regional settings Windows 2003 or Windows 2008

Hi all,

I have had something been making me go banana! Myself and another system administrator (shall call him adminB) access same servers on the network via RDP, when I access and check the regional settings I get the Aus regional settings which correct and perfect but when adminB access same server/s he gets the US regional settings!!!

Can anyone one shed a light on this as to why it is happening considering we are both in Same active directory and part of same domain and we have only one domain.

Feel free to ask for further information if necessary

Have you tried to have AdminB simply change the settings on his TS session? If so, It's possible his profile is corrupt. Try re-creating it and making the neccessary changes then.

Tell me how you go.
Each server will have it's own regional settings as a domain could be sread out across the globe.

US is the default setting, so it looks like it's been set correctly for you but not for anyone else. Did you build these servers?

On a server, go into Regional and Language options, ensure all the settings are set to AUS (If that's what you require) and then, on the Advanced tab, tick the check box at the bottom to apply these settings to the default user account.

When you next login as a user that hasn't before, say AdminC, you should get all the correct regional settings.

This is for Sever 2003. For 2008 go into Region and Language and then Administrative. Then there is a Copy Settings option to det your settings as default.

Hi all

Thanks for your time and effort,

t0paz:, i have tried what you said and i even went one step further and deleted the local profile of the adminb and had him to log back in again everything worked fine but we still have the issue with LANGUAGES, under the languages tab under details ; his default input language is always reverting to US where as mine is working fine and is English Aus

Do you know how i can further fine tune this
