Hi,

I followed the below procedure.

System clock is set to GMT by default. To change this, you'll have to edit the /etc/sysconfig/clock to set the variable ZONE="filename" where filename is the path of your time file, in /usr/share/zoneinfo/. Then you need to copy "filename" to /etc/localtime. For example, if you want to switch time to French localtime, do the following.

  • First check if "Paris" is available among the /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/ files.
  • Then edit the /etc/sysconfig/clock file and change ZONE="GMT" (by default) to ZONE="Europe/Paris?".
  • "cp /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Paris /etc/localtime"

Upon rebooting, your system localtime should be set to your value.

After this when i see the time in Honey Wall by giving "date" command it shows time as

[[email protected] ~]$ date Fri Jan 7 16:28:52 IST 2000 [[email protected] ~]$

Please advise.

Hi,

I have reinstalled Honeywall and now the time and s=date settings are as required. You can close this ticket.
