Sysprep Time Zone

When configuring syprep within an AWS AMI (or any template for that matter), don’t forget to set the time zone as needed (it defaults to UTC).


In my case I wanted Australian Eastern Time.


<TimeZone>AUS Eastern Standard Time</TimeZone>


A full list of time zones and their corresponding names can be found here:

A little about Me

My photo
My name is Mitch Beaumont and I've been a technology professional since 1999. I began my career working as a desk-side support engineer for a medical devices company in a small town in the middle of England (Ashby De La Zouch). I then joined IBM Global Services where I began specialising in customer projects which were based on and around Citrix technologies. Following a couple of very enjoyable years with IBM I relocated to London to work as a system operations engineer for a large law firm where I responsible for the day to day operations and development of the firms global Citrix infrastructure. In 2006 I was offered a position in Sydney, Australia. Since then I've had the privilege of working for and with a number of companies in various technology roles including as a Solutions Architect and Technical team leader.
