Distribution Point - Timezone schedule sync
At the moment when setting up a schedule for Distribution Points to do their syncing the timezone being used is the one from the primary site server.
when having DP's over multiple continents this brings some advanced math to get the sync done right :p
Would there be a possibility to use "Use DP local Time" as with advertisements ?
Or maybe in the schedule tab on the DP properties have a dropdown list with for example "you are now scheduling in GMT+1" where you can select a list of timezones so it does the calculations for you.

Same issue as Michael, we have DP's all over the world and it's getting harder and harder to count the time difference between the primary site and the DP's.

My customer has DPs in several timezones and wishes to control the network traffic for content distribution by honouring not only the Site Server's timezone but also the timezone of each targeted DP.

As someone who just set up a powershell script to set the schedules for the ~200 GLOBAL Distribution points, finding out that it is based on the sending site and not the DP came as a shock.
