Daemon service taking US timing


Dear Everyone,

I have some 8 service i am running those services using daemon tool

root@ip-10-12-195-154:[/usr/isac/tools]
$ echo $TZ
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Calcutta

I have set this in bash_profile file so that we i reboot the system it will take this time

But the problem is that when i run that services manually it will take Indian time zone but when i run those using daemontools it will use as a US timing.

Please can anyone Help me on this

Thanks & regards,
Gajanan Hiroji

Setting this in your bash_profile will not make it system wide. It will only set it for users that log in (assuming you are talking about /etc/bash_profile).

You need to set /etc/localtime to the appropriate TZ.

You don't mention the Linux distro you are using, so here's a general way to do it:
- Run tzselect to get the appropriate entry (seems to be /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Calcutta in your case)
- Now you can copy this to /etc/localtime:
Code:
cp -v --remove-destination /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Calcutta /etc/localtime

Dear druuna,

root@ip-10-12-195-154:[/etc]
$ vi localtime

localtime contains some encrypted code i not able to change in that.

That is correct. Why are you trying to open /etc/localtime with an editor?
