Regarding error related to TZ

Hello Techies,

I am getting below mentioned error for one of my HP-UX11.31 server. I am not sure about this error. Can anyone please help me out with this.

netfmt (169) Warning: The input file was created in a timezone that
is different from the present timezone. You may want to
adjust the environment variable TZ while formatting this file.
TZ found in trace/log file header: EST5EST

Re: Regarding error related to TZ

netfmt takes a network trace file as input and outputs formatted data.

You need to check the job that runs the netfmt command and see what file it is using as input. That file is the one that the error is complaining about, not the netfmt command itself.
