Subject: Query- Timezone difference between VSS client and server

Hi Vipul,


I have one query regarding VSS.


We have VSS server at onsite and working from india(OffShore) there is time difference of 4 and half hour between Onsite and OffShore.


We have problem with Time Zone difference. Suppose we check-in our changes at 5:30 PM (1:00 PM Onsite) then at 2:00 PM Onsite (6:30 PM OffShore) somebody label it to Version2.0. Our changes are not included in that label as time of label is 2:00Pm which is before check-in time 5:30 PM.


Can you please let me know if there is any solution available for it.


I believe that VSS server should consider Time Zone also as we are in +5:30 time zone and server in +1:00.


Is there any setting we can do at server side so server should consider time zone also with system time.


Thanks in Advance






 One has to be careful using SourceSafe over different time zones. The Time Stamp on the files being checked in are marked according to the client’s  configuration clock.  One way around this problem is to sync all computers interacting with sourcesafe acroos time zones to a common time. Another way is to use a third party add -on SourceOFFSite www.sourcegear.com.
