Is there a way to have a Group Policy to restrict all servers for UTC Coordinated Universal Time zone?  I understand by default all the servers are already synced with Domain Controllers.  
Thanks.

It would appear not.

There are some good workarounds on this page: http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1018141

The important thing to remember is that the time will be the same, it might just be presented differently due to a different time zone.

Okay I set the file in the Netlogon tzutil.  The only caveat I need to reboot.  Logoff/logon or gpupdate /force isnt helping.  
Any way to avoid a reboot?

Sorry, not sure.  You COULD try restarting the Windows Time Service but dont blame me if it all goes wrong!
