Scripting Question

Setting a user's timezone

12/13/2018 648 views

Hi, I'm new to KACE and am looking to jump right into it. 

I was looking for a way to set a (Windows - mainly 7 and 10) users timezone (date/time) via KACE (K1000). 

What is the best way to go about this?

I was thinking a script but since there is a timezone field under assets am I missing something that would be much easier ?

Thank you for your time and help.

That TimeZone field that you are seeing  under the assets is just grabbing the timezone that the machine is currently set to, and displaying it in KACE.

I agree with you and I think the best way to set this up would be with a script. 

You can use the command TZUTIL /s to set timezones via batch script.

    example: TZUTIL /s "Central Standard Time"

                      TZUTIL /s "Eastern Standard Time"

I believe if you run TZUTIL /L - it will list all available timezones that you can set.

Just setup the above command in the scripting area of K1000. Reach out again if you need any help setting up the actual script & pushing it to machines.
