Unable to change the timezone to PST8PDT even after trying all the possible methods
[root@test ~]# date Tue May 10 07:24:18 EDT 2016 [root@test ~]# ll /etc/localtime lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 May 10 06:35 /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/PST8PDT [root@test ~]# cat /etc/profile | grep TZ export TZ=PST8PDT [root@test ~]# date Tue May 10 07:24:57 EDT 2016 [root@test ~]# echo $TZ PST8PDT [root@test ~]# ls /root/.profile ls: /root/.profile: No such file or directory
Any other method to change ?
[root@test ~]# cat /etc/redhat-release Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.10 (Tikanga)
You should not use the ancient style “timezones” like PST8PDT. These have been deprecated and are not even available at all since at least RHEL 6 (2010).
Instead, use the current ones, e.g.
export TZ=America/Los_Angeles ln -snf /usr/share/zoneinfo/$TZ /etc/localtime
