How does Logon hours impact users who travel to another timezone?

Hi there

Just for some background. I want to set a few users to be able to log on during business hours which is 6AM - 6PM for all our business and branches.

There is a DC available in our main office (in western states), and another branch office (with a DC available there) in eastern state which is 2 hours in front

All of the users will work in our main office, and so it is ok for me to set the log on hours 6AM - 6PM.

Now if those users travel to the branch office, I assume that they will authenticate against the Branch Office DC and so does this mean that they will be able to log on given that its 6AM in the branch office, even though it's 4AM in the main office?

    Thank you for your question and reaching out.

    The data is saved using UTC, as shown in the mapping above, which makes it difficult to decode the LogonHours attribute. However, Active Directory Users and Computers will display the information using the local time zone of the computer running ADUC and will adjust the times based on the time zone offset.
