Linux time – Daylight saving time (DST)

Its that time of the year again when time changes and we have to make sure our servers are using the right zone with right time. Out of many servers I admin, I found 3 servers which had wrong time displaying. All of them had one thing in common, Fedora Core 4. So I fixed it by doing the folowing.

mv /etc/localtime /etc/localtime.old

ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/PST8PDT /etc/localtime
