I run an Active Directory 2003 domain controller that all of our employees use. We have one employee based on the West Coast whereas everyone else (and the domain controller) are on the East Coast. Whenever this employee tries to change the Time Zone to PST, it does nothing. They go to Date & Time in the Control Panel and select PST (GMT-8) as the time zone, Apply, then OK, but neither the time nor the time zone change at all. When trying to change just the time, it changes correctly, but as soon as they logoff/login or reboot, it is reset to EST.
I have looked through the Group Policies and all users are set to have access to change the system time, but I cannot find anything about the time zone. Also, in the Windows event log on the user's PC, there is an entry for W32Time, Event ID 35, that says "The time service is now synchronizing the system time with the time source (it shows the Domain Controller address here)."
I cannot figure out if there is a Group Policy that is causing this or if it is something on the user's PC or what. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
