1.  Multiple Time Zones

Posted 04-20-2017 04:37 PM
We have 1 server sitting in a data-center in Minneapolis on the Central timezone, but we have facilities located in central time and pacific timezone. Has anyone encountered a way to allow separate companies in GP, stored on the same server, to show different times based on timezone settings?

Hi Tyler

If you are using Terminal Server, each user's profile can have a different time zone.

We are using a Published Remote App from a terminal server, so users are only seeing the GP app, not the entire full desktop experience. I will do some research and see what I can find out.

You would change the Time Zone of the TS, not on a per user basis.

Hi Tyler,
There is a way to adjust automatically the TS settings for the TimeZone based on the remote computer's TZ...
https://techraptor.net/content/configure-terminal-server-for-different-time-zones
It involves using Group Policies to alter the settings to 'redirect' the user's TZ settings onto the TS server, like it would do for the printers & local drives.
Personnaly never tested it, but it would make sense to me too, as we have offices all around the world, but a single TS located on EST TZ.

PS: here is a series of articles about RDS policies.. be careful when doing any changes to GPO's as it can have adverse effects.. Test them out before applying to a production system.
