Question Red hat 7.3 clock problems with new york zoneinfo

ok, this is an odd one. my red hat 7.3 webserver is acting up. under date and time properties, my time was set to new york EST time zone. on e day all this changed. and the time was set to UTC. when i noticed this and tried to set back to new york EST time, it will not keep the setting, it defaults immediatly back to UTC time. now i can change the time zone to any other zone and it will accept the changes, but when i try to set it back to the new york EST time, it does not accept the change. no error msg, just goes right back to UTC.

when i looked in usr/share/zoneinfo/america at the new_york file, it is empty, and has a file size of )bytes. so i copied a good file from an identical server onto the server im having trouble with, it seemed to accept the change for a minute, then went right back to UTC and the zoneinfo file "new_york" was empty again.

please help.
