I know that this sounds strange, but I have a requirement for one WinXP PC to NOT change their time when our Win2k DC?s change their clocks to reflect daylight savings.
Bottom line: When the servers change from Eastern Standard Time to Eastern Daylight Savings Time, I have one PC that must stay on Eastern Standard Time, and not get it?s time changed from the DC?s. Is there a way to prevent this from happening?
One thought was to do a registry hack on the PC, and change the following parameter:
Type : REG_SZ
Used to control how a computer synchronizes.
NoSync = do not synchronize time
Is this the way to go, or is there a GPO that I can implement? Or, would it be much simpler to change the clock setting on the desk top, and uncheck the option to ?Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes??
