Project Server 2013 Queue Time stamp does not respect time zone settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • The PWA site is set to UTC-3 (Brasilia) time zone and published a project and the job appears at the queue with a delay of -4 hours. Then I set to UTC-7 (Mountain Time) and published again another project. It continues to show the delay of -4 hours. Looking at the queue seems that the time zone did not change.

    So Time zone setting in PWA site, root site do not have effect in the time stamp of the Queue, which seens that it is set bu default to Mountain Time and it cannot be changed.

    Look below the Queue and the server time at the App Server (one server for Project Server).

    The Project Server 2013 is updated with March 2013 + CU Feb 13 and it is running on Win Server 2008 R2 SP1.

    Windows Server, Project Server, Root Site are set to UTC-3.

  • Well, after some testing I found out what changes what in SharePoint/PWA.

    This is a summary of my findings. Some of them are obvious, but if you are not in the US PST Zone, you will need it.

    In Windows Server 2008 R2: -> sets server time according to your time zone and time format.

    • Control Panel - Clock, Language and Region - Change Time Zone - Change Time Zone - <your time zone>.
    • Control Panel - Change Display Language - Format - <your language>

    In PWA 2013 site -> sets the date format you see in PWA pages

    • Settings - Site Settings - Regional Settings - Time Zone - <your time zone>
    • Settings - Site Settings - Regional Settings - Region Locale - <your locale>

    In SharePoint 2013 Central Administration site -> set the time zone for your queue, monitoring and other SharePoint logs, but ULS (this follows server time).

    • Application Management/Manage web application - select SharePoint -80 (or equivalent)  and click on Manage/General Settings on Ribbon - Select Time Zone - <your time zone>
    • Repeat the process for SharePoint Central Administration v4. 

    It could be easier.

  • Hi Hrishi,

    This is a two box configuration, one for SQL Server and one for App server, both controlled by the same time server. I checked the time and time settings and both are shows the same time.

  • Yes.

    In the root site, PWA site and in Windows Server (this last for SQL and App Servers).

  • I am not referring to Central Admin or SharePoint Setting.

    Region option from Control panel

  • The Control Panel of Windows Server was the first place where we set the time zone and it is sincronized with the Timer Server of the Domain.
