ITMS 8.0 HF5 and below.
When CEM machines report inventory they store information from the clients registry
At this registry location are the valuse Last Failed and Last Succeeded. This are found on the NS in the Inv_Aex_AC_InternetGatewayDetails table. The values are stored in UTC time.
This creates a problem when you run the report Computers by Gateway. The last connection time will appear in the future. In this example machines are in MST 7 hours behind UTC time.
