At what exact time does AIX change the clock? At 2am Sunday morning,
does it automatically change it to 1am?
Unless you have the fix installed, using smit to change TZ info
screws up daylight savings time handling. To check if your system is
affected, do a echo $TZ it should reply with something like
EST5EDT. If you get EST5EDT,, (note the commas) yours is broken.
The fix is to comment the TZ line out of /etc/environment, then
chtz 'EST5EDT', then reboot.
I am sure that this has been rehashed a bunch of times, but I can't seem
to get it through my thick skull...
I have a RedHat 6.0 system, 2.2.13 kernel. I need to configure the darn
thing to keep the right time. I can't seem to correctly configure the
hardware clock so that it correctly deals with DST.
I tried setting it to UTC using RedHat's tools, but it had no effect.
The time zone information must be correct, since the calendar displays
EDT, but the hardware clock and the system clock are now exactly
backwards..... The hardware clock is one hour ahead of the system

What files do I need to change (by hand, not through possibly broken GUI
tools) to make this right?
