Active Directory and Daylight Savings Time

Created 06/21/2012 08:05  |   Updated 06/21/2012 08:58

Time Zones in Windows are automatically adjusted for Daylight Savings Time.

One of the most common issues when joining a Terastation or Linkstation Pro to Active Directory is proper time configuration.
The U.S. is currently in Daylight Savings Time and will be until November 4, 2007. Other years will vary.

The problem is that Time Zones in windows are automatically adjusted for Daylight Savings Time.
This does not happen on the NAS units so it needs to be changed manually.

Here is a chart of US time zones:

US Time Zones: During Standard Time: During Daylight Savings:
Pacific GMT-8:00 GMT-7:00
Mountain GMT-7:00 GMT-6:00
Central GMT-6:00 GMT-5:00
Eastern GMT-5:00 GMT-4:00

Please not the time is in 24-hour format, so 8 PM is 20 hours.
