Re: updating system with local time

Arik Kleiman

I don't have option to add systemd.

Added alrady tzdata and all time zone folders exist.
The issue is that ntpdate returns time in UTC.

I found a way to get local time zone (by using ip lookup). Now i looking for a way to use it to update system time

If you're using systemd, you could use the timedatectl command:

Otherwise, you can add the "tzdata" recipe to your image. It should
allow you to set the timezone that you want:
