4th cumulative time zone update for use with HFSLIP

Hello,

I'm observing a strange behaviour - maybe this is of any use for the package-developer:

I'm using Hfslip with a RIS/WDS-Server in order to install our clients. I think that since I added the 6th cumulative time zone update for use with Hfslip, right after installation all of the client-computers are using the timezone "(GMT+4:30) Kabul" instead of "(GMT +01:00) Amsterdam, Berlin, Bern Rom, Stockholm, Wien" which is configured as the default time zone in remboot.sif - quite probably al-Qaida hacked my RIS-setup ;-))

Might someone explain to me why this happens? Is it the fault of the timzone package for Hfslip or is any of my included MS hotfixes the root of all evil?

Kind regards,

Patrick

Oh, al-Qaida is innocent. That's because this plugin is out of date and needs to be updated. Don't use this!!

You have 2 solutions other than waiting update.

1:Put August 2008 cumulative time zone update (KB951072) in the HFSVCPACK_SW1 folder instead of in HF folder.

Timezone update will be installed at T-13. This solution is officially recommended.

2:Export the registry key from the machine KB951072 is correctly installed on and import it to your clients' machines.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones is the key you need. Put KB951072 in HF folder, and put the .reg file in HFSVCPACK folder or convert it into a suitable .inf file and put it in HFEXPERT\HIVEINSTALL folder.

If you put the .reg file in HFSVCPACK folder, timezone is modified at T-13. If you want to modify timezone at the start of setup as 4th cumulative time zone update does, use HIVEINSTALL folder. HIVEINSTALL is a littel difficult to use, so please refer to http://hfslip.org/advanced.html

Thank you very much for the summary pointing me to the best-practice-solution! One last question: how would you recommend to convert the registry-export to the mentioned inf-format? Is there a tool available to do so, or do I have to follow the syntax guidelines and convert it manually?

Kind regards,

Patrick

I use Reg2Inf converter.

After convert, edit it and follow the format below if you want to put it in HIVEINSTALL folder.
