Hi all

Just looking for a little help with something. The time zone I am setting (GMT Standard Time) is not being applied to the OS by the answer file, all other settings I have specified are working. Perhaps I have the incorrect setting, I know it's not referred to as UTC Dublin etc etc.

Here is my answer file:

"GMT Standard Time" should be correct.  A couple things you might try:
 - apply the setting during the OOBE pass
 - use the %TIMEZONE% variable in place any string.  If you're using WDS, the timezone of the WDS server will be automatically substituted.

This seemed to do the trick (using the setting %TIMEZONE% to pull the time from the WDS server).

Thanks, much appreciated.
