Red-Gate SQL Monitor: issues with Windows Registry

Earlier today I opened a topic on Red-Gate forums, about one issue I found while testing the soon-to-be-discontinued SQL Monitor Hosted service. That is a great service, and it was free while in beta, but unfortunately I did not have enough time to play with it (or write about it). Altough I really wish they extend the product a couple more months, I will post this message with the hope that it could help someone on the future – either with Hosted or On-Premise versions of SQL Monitor.

I was having some errors while trying to set up the monitoring on my Windows Server 2008R2 box, all related to the registry key “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time Zones”

It turns out the server did NOT have a valid TimeZone configured. It is easy to check this by cliking on the clock on the taskbar. Once the correct timezone was selected, this error stopped happening, resuming monitoring activities.
