Hi william,

cynin buildout will usually follow your server timezone faithfully. Please recheck the server timezone and recheck that the *server* is running at +10GMT.Try logging in (or using su username) with the user you're running instance with (effective-user in user.cfg) and running date on command line to get the server time.

Are you running from the source buildout or is this the community edition vmware appliance?

Further there is a setting in zope conf to change the instance-wide timezone as well.

I recommend going through these threads:

Thanks for trying out,
Dhiraj Gupta.

On my instance of Community edition appliance, server date and time are correct, I added TZ="EDT" to runzope and adjusted accordingly.

However, desktop is still showing GMT. Any ideas?

Awesome that you got your server TZ to switch.

The desktop handles the TZ conversions automatically, normally. Since it is running on your desktop and can determine your timezone correctly, we auto-convert the date times to your current timezone as reported by your desktop computer.

To test whether the conversion is correct / wrong you might have to test it by converting your local computer to the target TZ.

I think I got it...

1) Server at EDT
2) VM is at GMT
3) runzope sets EDT
4) Local machine at EDT

Both and desktop are showing correct time.

Am facing timezone issues too. VMWare based installation from community iso. VMWare host set for local time with local timezone, i.e. GMT+3. Server set for timezone with GMT+3. The server date and time are 3 hours ahead. /etc/default/rcS is having UTC=yes and tried with UTC=no, but no change in the server date and time. The shows correct time as per the server date and time. dekstop addes 3 more hours GMT+3. Essentially this means any status updates/discussions show 6 hours ahead of actual time on a desktop that has GMT+3 set.

Trying to figure out how to get the server date and time right and then will check on how to get desktop to skip the 3 hours addition.
