SCCM query timezone

In this article I would like to share the steps we have to do in order to get clients or servers Time Zone information, this request could be pretty common and required, therefore I really hope that the following details will be useful for you and your teams!

By default SCCM Hardware inventory doesn’t collection data about timezone, perhaps it is but no fully details, in order to collect this information first, we have to add those WMI to hardware inventory.

Open SCCM server and go to Administration > Overview > Client Settings
Then, Right click Default Client Settings and click Properties, > In the Hardware Inventory tab, click Set Classes:


On the search tab just type “time” and tick the group or whatever you would like to retrieve:

After that, we can wait for next hardware inventory cycle or run it manually, let’s do it manually.
Right click on eh collections >  first run: Download Computer Policy, then,  Collect Hardware Inventory:

You can monitor these actions on client operation:

Once fully query completed, from your end you can go a head and create timezone query.
