Description:

Problem

  • After deployment Windows Vista or Windows 7 OS the time zone displayed in the OS is not what was selected in the TimeZone Parameter.

  • The TimeZone Parameter was set to "US Eastern Standard Time"

    Figure 1

  • On the target machine the time zone is displayed as (UTC -5:00)Indiana (East)

    Figure 2

Environment

  • CA Client Automation r12.5

  • Windows Vista

  • Windows 7

  • Windows server 2008

Cause

Solution:

  • Assuming the desired time zone was "Eastern Time (US & Canada)" then the following parameter should be selected.

    Figure 3

  • If desired it is possible to alter how the parameter is displayed to reduce confusion.

  • The [TimeZone] section of the default.ini could be changed to reflect the new mapping as follows
