We can set the timezone on an Amazon EC2 instance to CST by using following steps: Login to your EC2 instance. Execute the command: “sudo su” to become a root user. Execute the command: “timedatectl” to know the current timezone details. Execute the command: “rm /etc/localtime” ( Press Enter). For confirmation type “Y” and Press Enter. Execute the command: “cd /usr/share/zoneinfo” (Press Enter). Execute the command: “ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Asia/Kolkata /etc/localtime” (Press Enter). Now check the timezone by using “timedatectl” command. That’s it. Timezone changed to CST successfully.(No need to reboot) Reference: https://www.quora.com/How-do-I-set-the-time-zone-on-an-Amazon-EC2-instance-to-CST https://stackoverflow.com/questions/11931566/how-to-set-the-time-zone-in-amazon-ec2
