Terminal Server 2012 R2 - Time Zone redirection issue

Hi guys

I have a thin client that connects to a Terminal Server 2012 R2 farm and since Turkey has scrapped the DST change, the users complain the time shown within the session is wrong.

I can see that Microsoft has released a patch (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3192321) for this problem, but I'm unsure...should this patch be installed on the thin client or on the terminal servers (or both ?) ?

The Terminal servers are configured to allow the redirection of the time zone. This was done because our terminal servers are serving multiple time zones.

Thanks!

Terminal server only as
 the client time shown in the Windows terminal session is strictly based off the time zone only--not the actual time set on the thin-client. So as long as your remote PC's have the correct time zone set and the server time is correct for the time zone it resides in.

if you allow redirection, then of course you need to update the client machine as such.
