I request your help in case somebody knows about the time options for a DHCP
At the company where i work we have implemented a NTP server, we have a
large amount of ntp clients we want to sincronize (windows XP most of them).
We are thinking of using DHCP options to try to send the NTP server address
as well as the correct time zone (UTC-6 & UTC-7).
We have tested on linux clients and they take the NTP server address but not
time zome; windows clients seem to ignore these 2 settings the DHCP server
sends them.

These are the options we have implemented on the DHCP server to send NTP
server settings and timezone:

option pcode code 100 = text;
option tcode code 101 = text;

 option ntp-servers;
 option pcode "CST6CDT";
 option tcode "America/Mexico_City";
 option time-offset    -21600;

I appreciate any advice you may have.

Best Regards,
Alma R.
