Changing timezone in Solaris

Solaris is always a bit different from Linx even in such minor issues. Timezone files are located in /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo. If your timezone is missing then just generate all of them by running:

# /usr/sbin/zic africa asia australasia europe northamerica southamerica

Then change TZ parameter in /etc/TIMEZONE to your timezone like:


Reboot for changes to take effect.
