Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 245203
FEATURE: need way to set guest clock to localtime instead of utc
Last modified: 2008-01-15 19:16:38 EST
Description of problem:
All guests booted with libvirt have their clock synced to UTC. Both Xen and
KVM/QEMU provide a way to specify that a guest is instead sycned to localtime.
Windows has braindead handling of timezones, so typically requires use of
localtime in its emulated clock source. So we need to have some kind of element
in the XML description for a guest to specify UTC vs localtime for the guest
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
In QEMU, this is done by add --localtime to command line used to start guest.
In Xen this is done by adding localtime=1 to the guest config / SEXPR.
Opps, got bug dependancy the wrong way around...
Patch included upstream. Will be in next release.
This hit F7 updates quite a while ago now...
