Description masanari iida 2005-11-02 02:10:48 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.11) Gecko/20050728

Description of problem:
tftp-server log (/var/log/messages) timestamp is in GMT, instead of localtime.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install tftp-server RPM
2. setup tftproot directory in /etc/xinetd.d/tftp
3. download some files... then see logs.

Actual Results:  logging time is in GMT

Expected Results:  logging time should be in localtime.

Additional info:

        server_args             = -v -s /tftpboot

Add localtime in /tftpboot/etc solve the problem.
# mkdir /tftpboot/etc
# cp -p /etc/localtime /tftpboot/etc

I've seen this bug for some time now. Oddly, it only syslogs in GMT for some
messages. Here is a recent example on Fedora Core 4:

Mar 17 21:38:47 bender in.tftpd[31938]: Cannot open map file: /etc/tftpd.rules:
No such file or directory
Mar 18 05:39:40 bender in.tftpd[31977]: RRQ from filename

The first error was my own fault for failing to create the file referenced in my
own addition of the -m option. Note the timestamp is *accurate* and reflects my
localtime PST.

The second error was a successful transfer. But it wrongly logs the time in GMT
only a minute of clock time after I resolved the error.

This issue is on Red Hat Engineering's list of planned work items 
for the upcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.8 release.  Engineering 
resources have been assigned and barring unforeseen circumstances, Red 
Hat intends to include this item in the 3.8 release.
