How to change the timezone on redhat linux system


First of all take the backup of the current timezone settings
mv /etc/localtime  /etc/localtime.bkp

Now. Suppose you want to change the timezone to Asia/Kolkatta
ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Kolkatta /etc/localtime

Thats it. It should be fixed now.
