I am runiing OSX Sever (ML) and I am having issues with all of the calendars on the wiki used by my staff for planning.

 

They show the wrong time zone (America/Los Angeles instead of Australia/Brisbane.)

 

My Mac is set to the correct Time Zone

My iCal is set to the correct time zone

 

I have attempted to fix using terminal but that failed as well

 

I have turned time zone support on and I have turned it off but neither approach works.

 

My staff are getting very angry that I cannot solve this issue. Can someone please assist?

    Did you upgrade already to Mountain Lion 10.8.2 and Server 2.1?

    The upgrade could help.

    There is a Settings button in the top-right corner of wiki calendars that allows the timezone to be set. Is that not working correctly for you?

    The web calendar stores the user's timezone setting in a cookie for use between sessions. Do you have cookies enabled for your web calendar site? If so, can you see what cookies are set after changing the timzone via the Settings button?

    The wiki calendar operates independently of the Calendar.app. The wiki stors the timezone setting in a "TZID" cookie associated with the wiki server hostname.

     

    Does your web browser have cookies enabled?

     

    Create an event at midday in your test wiki calendar.

     

    In your test wiki calendar, if you click the Settings button what timezome does it currently show? If you change that to a timezone with a different offset, then wait a few seconds, do you see the midday event shift in time?

     

    If you then quit and restart your browser and go back to the wiki calendar, does the timezone in the Settings panel show the old or new timezone? Where is the midday event?

    Well we are talking about slightly different things. My comments are in relation to the "view timezone" - the setting that each client uses to adjust the display of events - that is adjustable on a per client basis and is indepdent of any other client. That is different from the timezone specified in the events themselves (which since the events are stored on the server does appear the same to each client).

     

    Anyway, since the wiki "view timezone" seems to stick for you, please check if that is now working for you users too.
