Here's one for the group... I'm sure it's been answered before, but I
haven't been able to find an answer searching the group (maybe I wasn't
searching right?)

How can I get all the computers in my domain on the same time zone? (We're
a single site, so I don't have to worry about people outside my time zone).

I've figured doing a login script for a computer, to import a reg key
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation]
"Bias"=dword:0000012c
"StandardName"="Eastern Standard Time"
"StandardBias"=dword:00000000
"StandardStart"=hex:00,00,0a,00,05,00,02,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00
"DaylightName"="Eastern Daylight Time"
"DaylightBias"=dword:ffffffc4
"DaylightStart"=hex:00,00,04,00,01,00,02,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00
"ActiveTimeBias"=dword:000000f0

Would put me on the right track, and get everyone on the same hour... as it
is, I have some people scheduling a meeting for 4p, and then on the meeting
recipients, it's showing as 5p, but all the clocks look the same (at least
they display the same time).

Am I in the right ball park, or am I doing something completely wrong?

TIA,
Ken

See tip 7525 in the 'Tips & Tricks' at http://www.jsifaq.com
RunDLL32 shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL %SystemRoot%\system32\TIMEDATE.cpl,,/Z US Eastern Standard Time

Also make sure that DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet, a REG_DWORD data type, at
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation is either 0 or not present.

Your users may not have permissions to the HKLM keys.

You could use tip 4195 to run both the
RunDLL32 shell32.dll,Control_RunDLL %SystemRoot%\system32\TIMEDATE.cpl,,/Z US Eastern Standard Time
and regedit /s \\Server\netlogon\daylight.reg

where daylight.reg contains:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\TimeZoneInformation]
"DisableAutoDaylightTimeSet"=-

Jerold-

Thanks for the assistance... just one other question on the topic that I can
think of...

Wouldn't I want the computers to automatically adjust for daylight savings
time? I realize I want all the computers to look the same, but is there a
standard setting I should use (one over another)?

Thanks again

Ken

The default is to automatically adjust. I use the default.

What's weird about this is that I check for Eastern to Automatically Adjust
for Daylight Savings when I prep a computer... but now I have a few users
who aren't (for one reason or another) on the same setting (even though I
set the computer up with the checkbox checked).

Thanks again

Ken
