DESCRIPTION

The timezone file contains information regarding the default timezone for each host in a domain. Alternatively, a single default line for the entire domain may be specified. Each entry has the format:

Timezone-name    official-host-or-domain-name

Items are separated by any number of blanks and/or TAB characters. A ‘#’ indicates the beginning of a comment; characters up to the end of the line are not interpreted by routines which search the file. The timezone is a pathname relative to the directory /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo.

This file is not actually referenced by any system software; it is merely used as a source file to construct the NIS timezone.byname map. This map is read by sysidtool(1M) to initialize the timezone of the client system at installation time. For more information, see the .

The timezone file does not set the timezone environment variable TZ. See TIMEZONE(4) for information to set the TZ environment variable.

EXAMPLES
