  • Enable this setting in Default Domain Policy in both domains:
    Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Group Policy/Allow Cross- forest user policy

    Create one GPO with logon script in first domain and another in second domain.

    Regarding script to set time zone, you could refer to the suggested ones in the following articles:
    Script to change the time zone in Windows 7 or Windows 8 (PowerShell)

    And regarding to deploy logon script in GPO, please refer to:

  • Hi,

    Logon script in the GPO is User Configuration which will only affect user accounts, so you might need to link the GPO to the US users.

  • Hi,
    The PDC Emulator of the Forest Root Domain is considered as the best time source in an Active Directory forest. Other domain controllers in the Forest Root Domain use it for time synchronization while domain controllers in child domains use the PDC Emulator or any domain controller from parent domain for time synchronization. Member servers and Workstation use domain controllers in their domain for time synchronization. With this hierarchy, we can maintain a reliable time synchronization system that allows avoiding Kerberos failure issues in an Active Directory domain. This configuration is by default in an Active Directory forest and does not need to be changed.
    And if the time is not synced, you could have a try the following the article to sync time and see if it works:

  • Time zone is computer based setting and configure at computer level not the user level

    or You can configure logon script that will change the timezone whenever user logon on to a system

  • You can configure a logon script for time zone changing, as it was mentioned above by Ganesamoorthy, but let me explain you how this will works:
    Let's assume you have all India users in OU India and all US users in OU US. You create a GPO that set US time zone and link it to US OU. You create another policy for India OU.  When user from India logs into a terminal server, logon script set server's time zone = India time zone. But then US user logs into the same terminal server and server's time zone changes again, even if India user is still working, furthermore, all logged users will see time as US time, due to last logged user is US user

  • Hi,

    user's workstation obtains time from DC in UTC (Coordinated Universal Time)  format.
    Display time is calculated as a system time+ time zone adjust.

    Time zone setting is stored locally on workstation in registry and this setting is not depend on user's location. 

    You can create a GPO to update time zone registry settings.

  • When you talk about single machine, you can change the time zone manually. Again, time change has no effect on login as time zone is obtained in UTC format as said by others.
