Change time zone in Azure Active Directory Domain Services

Copper Contributor



Is it possible to change the time zone in which AAD DS is running? We currently use WVD and we could not figure out how to change the time zone of the domain controller since all access to it is blocked.

Is there a powershell cmdlet for this?


Thanks in advance

+1 I have the same question.

Wouldn't mind knowing what AAD DS uses by default for time sync too. Is it Host time?
Did you find the answer to this? I'm struggling with the same issue.
same here any answer? I have the same issue.

Hi @Anas_Almohana ,


Have you tried running 

 Set-TimeZone -Name "Timezone name"

Example to set Eastern Standard Timezone:

 Set-TimeZone -Name "Eastern Standard Time"


List of available timezones, you can run this command:

Get-TimeZone -ListAvailable


Once you see your timezone on the list, you can set and run. 


Hello, did you find a solution to this problem?@Chruesch
