Setting a Universal Co-ordinated Timezone

Setting a Universal Co-ordinated Timezone

Setting a Universal Co-ordinated Timezone

If your company is in country A; the data center is having timezone B; your customers are in country Y; and say their users are in country Z.

In this case you can  try Universal Co-ordinated Time (UTC).

Please edit the file /etc/sysconfig/clock as

vi /etc/sysconfig/clock

and change the UTC line as
UTC=true

You can set localtimezone to UTC as

ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/UTC /etc/localtime

If you want to set your timezone other than UTC ,say your personal timezone, then you find that timezone under /usr/share/zoneinfo and link that to /etc/localtime as,

ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Country-name/City-name /etc/localtime.
