Workstation date and time could not be set

We are in the process of setting all our users to restricted rights on
windows xp professional. As im sure you know a restricted user cant
change the date and time on the computer because of this. So when the
login script runs it gives an error message "workstation date and time
could not be set". What can I do to fix this?

Workstation date and time could not be set

If you have Zenworks you can edit the workstation policy to allow the
"Users" group to change the time. If not you have to do it manually.
Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings -> Security Settings -> Local
Policies -> User Rights Assignments -> Change the system time.
You can add groups here to allow them to change the time.
You can also edit the NTP server on the workstation so it points to your
server making this just a cosmetic issue.

Re: Workstation date and time could not be set

Which workstation policy do I have to enable to be able to change that
setting? I have the workstation package that contains the Remote Control
Policy.

Re: Workstation date and time could not be set

The way to do this is to open the Control Panel - Administrative Tools and
Double-Click on the "Local Security Policy" icon. Then, open the "Local
Policies -> User Rights Assignments" container and double-click on the
"Change the system time" option. Now add the "User" group to the
"Assigned To" section.
