GPO Time Change per User


I have a server 2008 R2 server environment. The issue I have is I have clients from all different times zones(central, easter, pacific...) connecting to my environment. The application they use takes the local time of the server which is set to central time. The clients in the time zones are having issues because the time stamps in their application are different then the time zone their in.

Is there any way possible I set set up different time zone on the same machine? Preferably through Group Policy?

You cannot setup multiple time zones on a single machine. This is a poorly designed application if I cannot take time zone configuration in to account.

I had a similar issue in the past and what I need to do was host this on a Citrix or Remote Desktop Services Server and have my clients connect to it which then used the time zone of the server itself.

You cannot set multiple time zones per PC.  Your users are just going to have to adjust to the time difference.  

Another option is to contact the developer and see if you can run the software as a client and store it on servers in each time zone.

You can go for a Citrix where it use client timing or use application locally and try to set application preference to use local time zone.
