Linux: timezone setting for historical data collection- UNIX - WAS agent

If your site uses Linux as its WAS operating environment, synchronize historical data collection at the agent with the timezone of the Tivoli Enterprise Portal client. To do this, set a time zone variable in the Linux /etc/profile file. For example, to set the Linux time zone to the U.S. Pacific time zone, perform the following steps:

  1. Perform one of the following actions:

    • For Red Hat Linux, set:
      ZONE="US/Pacific"
      export ZONE

    • For SuSE and Novell Linux, set:
      TIMEZONE="US/Pacific"
      export TIMEZONE

  2. Reboot your Linux computer.
