Dim strHostName, strSearchFoR
Set objComputer = CreateObject("Shell.LocalMachine")
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
strHostName = UCase(objComputer.MachineName) strSearchFor = UCase("Term")
Step 2 of 2:
If InStr(1, strHostName, strSearchFor) > 0 then
wscript.echo "Changing Time Zone to Arizona"
objShell.Run "CONTROL.EXE TIMEDATE.CPL,,/Z Us Mountain Standard Time"
Unfortunately, I don't think you can do this the way you're doing it. The problem is, although there is a WMI object representing terminal server sessions, it does not include the time zone property. In short, we can't get to this information via VBScript and, as you saw, setting it on the terminal server changes it for everybody. You might try a product called Time Machine to see if this user-based time-setting tool can help you. I have not tried this tool, but it looks like it answers your question.
