ACS 4.1 on Windows 2003 timezone/gmt offset problem w/syslog

Unanswered Question

I'm in the process of upgrading from 3.3 to 4.1 on some vmware windows 2003 servers. I want to take advantage of the new syslog feature by sending all the accounting information to our central syslog server. However when I look in the syslog the time is 7 hours in the future. Below is a log entry showing it's 9:34pm and then a date command showing it's 2:39pm.

The times in the normal CSV reports are correct. The time on the Windows server is correct. The time on the syslog server is correct. The time in all the other log information sent to the syslog server is correct. Can anyone think of why the time in the ACS syslog is 7 hours in the future? Thanks,


Mark

There is no workaround.
