Module description

This module manages the timezone.

Setup

What timezone affects

It symlinks /etc/localtime to the appropriate timezone under /usr/share/zoneinfo/. On EL6 it manages /etc/sysconfig/clock. On Debian and Ubuntu it manages /etc/timezone.

Setup requirements

This module has no dependencies outside of stdlib.

Beginning with timezone

Include the timezone class to set your timezone to 'UTC'.

include timezone

Usage

To set the timezone to something other than the default of 'UTC'.

Example using a manifest

class { 'timezone':
  timezone => 'Europe/Berlin',
}

Example using Hiera

timezone::timezone: 'Europe/Berlin'

If using EL6

You can specify if the hardware clock is set to UTC.

Example using a manifest

class { 'timezone':
  hwclock_utc => true,
}

Example using Hiera

timezone::hwclock_utc: true
