Changing timezone

Follow these instructions to change timezone on the baremetal server on Cloud Pak for Data System. Timezone changes are only supported on control nodes. Note that for NPS nodes you need to perform additional steps, as described in Changing time zones on Netezza.

Before you begin

Ensure that you have the customer's timezone information.


  1. Connect to e1n1 by using the application floating IP.

    timedatectl list-timezones
    and find the correct timezone from the output list. Press q to exit the list.
  3. Update the timezone value in the .yml file by following Timezone section.
  4. Validate the YAML file.
  5. Test the YAML file and run the playbooks.
