SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. In a domain that uses the Active Directory directory service, you grant the "Change the time zone" user right to some users or to some groups. Then, you use Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) to generate a Group Policy Results report on a client computer that is running Windows Vista.

In this scenario, when you view the Group Policy Results report, the "Change the time zone" policy setting is absent.

Note The "Change the time zone" policy setting is in the following location:
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment

CAUSE

This problem occurs because GPMC cannot report the "Change the time zone" policy setting.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, use the Resultant Set of Policy tool (Rsop.msc) to view the "Change the time zone" policy setting.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

MORE INFORMATION

Group Policy Management Console (GPMC) is a scriptable Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in. GPMC provides a single administrative tool for managing Group Policy across the enterprise.

Originally, GPMC was provided as a separate downloadable component for Microsoft Windows XP and for Microsoft Windows Server 2003. Now, GPMC is directly integrated into the operating system. GPMC is the standard tool for managing Group Policy and the Local Group Policy Editor.
