Does IIS log entries in its logs in GMT or UTC time? Where can I find the setting? The server I am running is a Windows 2008 R2.

First, according to the Interwebz, GMT and UTC are pretty much the same thing, except one adds in leap seconds to make the calendar more accurate.

The default time for IIS logs is in UTC.

On the IIS Manager main page, you can click 'Logging' and it gives you the option to save logs in your local time format (whatever that may be).

Sorry if this is vague, but those are the only answers I could find. I will look around a bit more.
