wmi experts

Thought this was working, but second glance shows 'no'...
I'm running this on a server in EST.  The .CurrentTimeZone should reveal -300, but shows -240 instead.

set oQuery=oWMI.ExecQuery("select * from Win32_ComputerSystem")
wscript.echo .CurrentTimeZone

Any idea(s) why?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Why do you need the TimeZone??

Try using Win32_TimeZone anyways and see if you get a change.

<  script >

Option Explicit

Dim objWMI
Dim colClass
Dim objClass
Dim strComputer

strComputer = "."
Set objWMI = GetObject("winmgmts:\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colClass = objWMI.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_TimeZone",,48)

On Error Resume Next

For Each objClass in colClass
      WScript.Echo "Bias: " & objClass.Bias

Set objWMI = Nothing
Set colClass = Nothing
Set objClass = Nothing
using objClass.Description will print out the selection for the timezone as well (i.e. eastern, pacific, etc.)
Sounds like the server allows for daylight time, before which ET is GMT-5, after which it's GMT-4.
