Workaround Virtuozzo VPS Time Zone Problem

Set Time Zone Utility is a simple workaround for the Virtuozzo VPS Time ZoneProblem. Below explains VPS and Virtuozzo, and what the problem is. Then below explainshow Set Time Zone Utility works around the problem.

What is the Virtuozzo VPS Time Zone Problem?

Virtual Private Server (VPS) is also known as Virtual Dedicated Server. VPS hostingis a means to have "virtually" the power of a dedicated server at lowcost. Low cost is several software-virtualized servers on one real computer. VPS's host web sites,but can be used for any remote computer use.

Two popular flavors of VPS are Parallels's Virtuozzo and Microsoft's Hyper-V."Virtuozo virtualizes the OS while Hyper-V ... virtualizes the physical server.The VZ server requires only a single installation of Windows, while each Hyper-Vrequires its own windows installation and license."

Indinfer rented a Virtuozzo VPS in Arizona. Ron Lewis, the Owner/Director, set thetime zone to his local Baltimore time zone. He noticed that on reboot, the VPS revertedback to the Arizona time zone. And that is the Virtuozzo Time Zone Problem. Thetime zone reverts on reboot.

Since the whole idea is a "virtual" server mimics a real server, the VirtuozzoTime Zone Problem would seem to be a Parallels Virtuozzo bug. The mimic is deficientbecause a real server does not revert on reboot.

Setting the VPS time zone to match the local computer places the VPS "virtually"in the same location as the local computer.

How Set Time Zone Utility Works Around the Problem

If you have access to the hardware node or to a Virtuozzo control panel (for example, you are the VPS provider), then you have other options to fix the Time Zone Problem. However, this utility can still work around the problem, even if you do not have such access.

Put Set_Time_Zone.exe in the Startup Folder. Then Set Time Zone Utility runs on every reboot.So, even though Parallels' Virtuozzo reverts the time zone to the physical server'stime zone setting, Set Time Zone Utility "re-reverts" to the user's desired time zone.

Without switches, running Set Time Zone Utilityreads its configuration file and sets the time zone. The /config switch causes Set Time Zone to create the configuration for the currently set time zone.Inspect the Configuration File using Notepad. And using XML technology, documentationfor Set Time Zone Utility is also in the configuration file.

Automate Time Zone Setting

DOS batch files and programs can call Set Time Zone Utility to change the Windows time zone programmatically.

Limitations

Microsoft updates users' computers with time zone data when governments changethe Daylight Savings Time start and stop dates. Therefore, re-configuring onceor twice a year is necessary when time zone Daylight Savings data changes.

What If I Do Not Want To Wait For Parallels to Fix Its Time Zone Bug?

I'm glad you asked! If you do not want to wait for Parallels to fix its bug,buy Set Time Zone Utility.

What If I Want an Easy Way for My Batch File or Program to Change the Time Zone?
