Q

How can I reset the time zone on my mail server?

We have a Solaris on x86 running our Secondary Mail Server in India. Currently the TimeZone is set as GMT+5. However we need to set the TimeZone corresponding to India (Asia/Calcutta, or GMT+ 5.30 hrs). How can we set the same?

The OS is SunOS 5.8 Generic_108529-01 i86pc i386 i86pc.
It's a simple two step procedure.

  1. Edit /etc/default/init to TZ=Asia/Calcutta.
  2. Reboot the box.
That should do the trick.

Good luck!
