  • GPO Create Time Different

    When I create a new GPO, and verify it using GPO tool. I am noticing the following:



    Friendly name: Test Policy 2

    Created: 5/16/2011 7:52:37 PM

    Changed: 5/16/2011 7:52:37 PM



    Although it shows that the policy was created at 7:52pm EST, it actually was created at 3:52pm. I have confirmed that the DC with the PDC are syched with time.nist.gov. And the time seems to be correct. Anyone have any suggestions?

    IIRC Windows works with GMT (UT) deep down, so +4 hours looks about right

      On the 'Details' tab of the GPO you can find the 'Unique ID' of the object.
      Use Windows explorer to browse to \\domain.local\sysvol\domain.local\policies
      Find the subfolder named after the unique ID. Open Properties of that folder, what is the creation date and time it is showing there?
