This timezone can be changed a number of ways. Please refer to the following options:
OPTION 1: Changing manually to a specific date:
1.1. The date command can be used for both viewing and changing the date and time.
1.2. To change the time use date followed by the month, day, hour, minute, and year all numeric and no spaces. So, to set the date and time to November 2nd, 2003 12:57
OPTION 2: Changing manually to a timezone:
2.1. The hardware clock can be updated in UTC (coordinated universal time), or a required local time.
2.2. To update it to local time, remove the --utc and add --localtime
The date and time can be changed directly to the hardware clock and then used to update the system clock.
OPTION 4: Change the localtime file:
$ ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Los_Angeles /etc/localtime
Some applications may use the configuration file /etc/sysconfig/clock to determine the current time zone so it's a good idea to set the ZONE entry (e.g. "America/Los_Angeles").
OPTION 5: Change the timezone file:
Navigate to /etc/timezone and enter the required timezone. For example, if only "Asia/Vladovostok" is contained in this file, remove this entry (using vi, for example) and replace it with the required entry (for example, Australia/Melbourne). A restart of the appliance/VM should not be required after making this change.
