Simpler Navigation for Servers and Operating Systems
Completed: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We combined many of the older boards, so you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. Check the consolidated boards here as many sub-forums are now single boards.

Re: Timezone

Hello,

Have a look to /etc/zoneinfo/localtime link!

# sizer -v
Digital UNIX V4.0G (Rev. 1530); Fri Feb 21 18:00:43 MET 2003

root@myhost:/etc/zoneinfo# date
Mon Oct 27 10:16:27 MET 2003

root@myhost:/etc/zoneinfo# date -u
Mon Oct 27 09:16:29 UTC 2003

#cd /etc/zoneinfo
#ls -ltr | grep localtime
root@myhost:/etc/zoneinfo# ls -ltr | grep localtime
lrwxr-xr-x 1 root system 5 Aug 13 2002 localtime@ -> ./MET

Now you can easily change the localtime link to what you want.

If your need more infos have a look to sources directory.
root@myhost:/etc/zoneinfo# ls
./ Egypt GMT+3 GMT-12 GMT10 GMT9 Mexico/ UCT
../ Factory GMT+4 GMT-2 GMT11 Greenwich NZ US/
Australia/ GB-Eire GMT+5 GMT-3 GMT12 Hongkong NZ-CHAT UTC
Belfast GMT GMT+6 GMT-4 GMT13 Iceland Navajo Universal
Brazil/ GMT+0 GMT+7 GMT-5 GMT2 Iran PRC W-SU
CET GMT+1 GMT+8 GMT-6 GMT3 Israel Poland WET
Canada/ GMT+10 GMT+9 GMT-7 GMT4 Jamaica ROC Zulu
Chile/ GMT+11 GMT-0 GMT-8 GMT5 Japan ROK localtime@
Cuba GMT+12 GMT-1 GMT-9 GMT6 Libya Singapore sources/
Dublin GMT+13 GMT-10 GMT0 GMT7 London SystemV/
EET GMT+2 GMT-11 GMT1 GMT8 MET Turkey



I.e.
# cd sources
root@myhost:/etc/zoneinfo/sources# ls
./ africa australasia europe northamerica systemv
../ asia etcetera factory southamerica
root@myhost:/etc/zoneinfo/sources#

root@myhost:/etc/zoneinfo/sources# file *
africa: ascii text
asia: ascii text
australasia: ascii text
etcetera: ascii text
europe: ascii text
factory: ascii text
northamerica: ascii text
southamerica: ascii text
systemv: ascii text

Hope it helps,
