    Hi All

     

    I recently had an issue where there was a need to change the default TimeZone value in an OSIM image that was already deployed and thus could not be changed in the GUI. The following procedure will show how to achieve this.

     

    1. Explore to ........\CA\DSM\Server\SDBS\var\managedpc\images\<image_name>
    2. Edit Default.ini
      1. Add the following line between the Comment and the first item= line of the [TimeZone] section.

        UpdateDefault=yes
    3. Change the default value for timezone at the top of the file in the [Default] section.
      For example if you wish to change the default to GMT then you would make the following update.

      TimeZone=GMT Standard Time
    4. Run the Update OS Image wizard
      1. Select the image to update.
      2. Select "Update the image registration in a domain only".
      3. Select "Register the image data only".
      4. leave all other options as default.
    5. Once the wizard has finished the default value will be updated.

     

    I hope this proves useful to you all.

    Regards
