I recently came across what seems to be a bug in Windows Server 2019 (OS build 17763.1039) that I’d like to share in case you or someone you know runs across it.
Here’s what I experienced:
While logged-in as an administrator, I noticed the time zone needed to be changed. So I set off to change it. I tried to adjust the time zone within Windows Settings, but it never changed. I then tried to adjust it in the Control Panel, but received the following error:
So, how to fix this?
Here’s what you need to do:
1. Right-click on the Start menu & select Windows PowerShell (Admin)
2. While in PowerShell, type timedate.cpl and press Enter. This launches the Date and Time window.
3. Next, click on Change time zone, adjust the time zone, and click OK twice.
There are a couple of other ways to fix this, but I found this to be the simplest. I hope that helped! For additional tips and tricks, be sure to check out our blog.
