I wrote this function in the script from my previous post “SCOM MP Authoring Example: Generate alerts based on entries from SQL Database (Part 2 of 2)”. It comes handy sometimes so I thought I’ll blog it separately as well.
In PowerShell Datetime object, there is a ToUniversalTime() method that converts local time to UTC time.
However, there isn’t a native way to convert FROM UTC To local time. So I wrote this function:
$strCurrentTimeZone = (Get-WmiObject win32_timezone).StandardName
$TZ = [System.TimeZoneInfo]::FindSystemTimeZoneById($strCurrentTimeZone)
$LocalTime = [System.TimeZoneInfo]::ConvertTimeFromUtc($UTCTime, $TZ)
