In TNI v1.6.7 and 1.6.8, the Time zone value it reflects when running a report for these computers is shown as "GMT --5:00". Am I misinterpreting the results in TNI when comparing to the timezone setting on the workstation, or should these actually match up to reflect -06:00?

I would request a review of this for potential inclusion in a future update to instead show the true time zone value the computer is set for and then in a different field show whether or not daylight savings is in effect. Thank you.

I understand the resulting math if you add the hour for Daylist Savings Time (CST), but the resulting Timezone reflected is not accurate.
I bring this up again because we just had an issue the other day where a user was saying their time was constantly wrong. Turns out the option to adjust for Daylight Savings Time was not checked, when it should have been. We've also had issues in the past where the wrong timezone was seleted when the comptuer was setup, which can cause issues with Outlook appointment reminders not coming up at the correct time. So we really need to be able to differentiate between the DST option being checked or unchecked, and also the timezone that has been selected.
We have computers in our organization that are installed in two different timezones and what we would much prefer in TNI is if the Timezone information and the option to adjust for DST were two sepearte fields. That way the Timezone that is set would properly be reflected in TNI and also we would easily see if the option to adjust for DST is also set, or not set.
As it is, if you have a combination of the wrong timezone and/or wrong DST option checked, you can't rely on TNI to verify if these two items are set correctly. (Especially when we have different timezones in our computers to contend with.)
