If an RDS host is in one time zone and a user is in another time zone, by default, when the user connects to an RDS desktop, the desktop displays time that is in the time zone of the RDS host. You can enable the Time Zone Redirection group policy setting to make the RDS desktop display time in the local time zone. This policy setting applies to application sessions as well.

Before you begin

  • Verify that the Group Policy Management feature is available on your Active Directory server.

    The steps for opening the Group Policy Management Console differ in the Windows 2012, Windows 2008, and Windows 2003 Active Directory versions. See "Create GPOs for Horizon Group Policies" in the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document.

  • Verify that the Horizon 7 RDS ADMX files are added to Active Directory. See "Add the Remote Desktop Services ADMX Files to Active Directory" in the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document.

  • Familiarize yourself with the group policy settings. See " RDS Device and Resource Redirection Settings" in the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document.

  4. In the Group Policy Management Editor, navigate to Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Device and Resource Redirection.
