Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 244786
Windows client clock time offset
Last modified: 2008-01-22 10:38:32 EST
Description of problem:
Windows clients have faulty timezone.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install windows xp as a client under virt-manager
2. Set timezone as usual under windows
3. In my case the time is then 2 hours off under windows, 09:36 on F7 is 07:36
on the windows client.
Timezone is off under windows. The timezone is set correctly in F7 and in Window
s XP, but in my case the windows time is then displayed 2 hours off. Setting the
timezone 2 hours further east fixes the problem.
Correct time under windows.
it's the same here
There is no support for starting a guest with its clock synced to localtime -
all guest clocks use UTC currently. Adding bug 245203 to support localtime in

Upstream virt-manager now automatically uses localtime when installing Windows
guests. This is already in rawhide and will be in the next Fedora 7 update
