  • Time Change

    Until recently Indiana has been in "Indiana East" time zone. Now we have been changed to Eastern, with daylight savings time so we all have to change the time zone and check the dst box on every pc on our networks. most users can't even view the time zone info because of rights. can the time zone be change by a Group policy login script, and if so how?

          what you can do trying:

          run a utility like regsnap:
          Take a snapshot before the adjustment
          make the adjustments you need
          create a snapshot after the changes are applied.


          let them compare, and try creating a registry file of the differences.

          It's just a thought. i hadded only about 300 computers, so i've bought some nike air max shoes :P

            MS has a KB hotfix you can call and get sent to you.
            They have one for Central and Eastern.
            Along with that you can use it in a logon script.
            Look for KB article 914837

            Also keep in mind that Outlook calendar entries will be off by one hour during the DST periods.

            I have tried a few things however have not found a easy solution.
            I tried exporting my calendar then re-importing after I had made my TZ change. That did not work.

            Any ideas on the outlook issue would be appreciated.

            Thanks..

              You might also want to take a look at the following article by Daniel and myself:
              http://www.petri.com/summer_clock_in...l_for_2006.htm

              it is about simmilar issue and the tz2005 (last year version of the app - the link is somewhere in the article) comes with the code you can use as reference.
