Time zone not recognized on Windows Server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • OS: Windows 2008 R2 (Ent.) terminal server (All the latest patches and updates are installed)

    Problem:
    Time zone keeps changing after installing (in our case) the Dutch language pack. The time zone switches to "(UTC -12:00) Dateline Standard Time" and an error "Your current time zone is not recognized. Please select a valid time zone...."

    Changing the time zone under an administrator account doesn't work (as suggested in link). Tried both manually and with the tzutil -command. It works for a while, but after a few minutes it changes back.

    When I change the language back to default (English). The problem does not excist.

    Can someone please help us...

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    Is the server upgrade from earlier version? If so, you may check the following article.

    Incorrect time displayed on 64-bit versions of Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 after in-place upgrade

    In addition, it appears the issue is not related to Terminal Services. I’d like to recommend that you repost at Windows Server General Forum. Your understanding is appreciated.
