timezone Keyword

You can set the time zone for the system with the timezone keyword. Use the following syntax.


In the previous example, timezone specifies the time zone value for the system. The directories and files in the /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo directory provide the valid time zone values. The timezone value is the name of the path relative to the /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo directory. You can also specify any valid Olson time zone.
