Setting the Timezone on the Base

7 Nov

Now, I need to set the timezone on the base to Brisbane Queensland Australia.

I’ve ripped the steps from a previous implementation plan that I developed.


  1. Login to the web shell as “root”.
  2. Issue the command “dpkg-reconfigure tzdata”.
  3. Select “Australia” and then select “Brisbane”.
  4. Issue the command “date” and the time zone should be shown in our time zone.

It’s nice and easy; however, I used to forget this one a while back and users would wonder why the time was ten hours behind :(.  Oh well, that’s learning!  I love building reusable templates that I can take anyway, and the BASH environment’s ease of copy/paste commands from a procedure into its session :).  NIX rox!
