I'm trying to a create a policy to be able control the date format in a regional setting. I haven't seen anything in AD about this. Is this possible without creating some complex script?
You need to create an ADM file and import it into a Group Policy object. You'll need to experiment a bit to ensure that the ADM file is doing what you need it to do, but it will probably look something like this:
----- date.adm ----- class user category "regional settings" policy "Change date format" keyname "control panel\international" part "change to:" edittext valuename "sShortDate" default "dd/mm/yyyy" end part end policy end category ----- date.adm -----
