Hello,

1)Configure the Time Zone according to your Country Zone setup

[root@localhost]# rm -f /etc/localtime

[root@localhost]# ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Kolkata /etc/localtime

3) [root@localhost]# vi /etc/sysconfig/clock
ZONE=”Asia/Kolkata”
UTC=true
ARC=false
4) set the current date and time
date 110215132015 ( month day hour min year )
5) check the date .
[root@localhost]# date
