Comment 1 Michal Skrivanek 2013-06-11 01:50:20 EDT
note: this is actually about applying defaults set in engine-config. By default new VMs will be created with GMT(UTC) initial timezone setting which is what most people want for Linux OSes
Comment 5 Jiri Belka 2013-06-17 06:17:41 EDT
ok, rhevm-3.2.1-0.31.el6ev.noarch.

engine=> select * from vdc_options where option_name like '%TimeZone%';
 option_id |      option_name       |   option_value    | version 
       372 | DefaultWindowsTimeZone | GMT Standard Time | general
       373 | DefaultGeneralTimeZone | Etc/GMT           | general
(2 rows)

* related issues:

1) engine-config part is not done yet, but this can be solved by adding option_name(s) into /etc/ovirt-engine/engine-config/engine-config.properties, restarting ovirt-engine. then one can use rhevm-config to define its own TZ. (BZ974982)

2) if one would put "incorrect" TZ, the value in UI dialog does not show original default fallback but it does show - default: null

# rhevm-config -g DefaultWindowsTimeZone
DefaultWindowsTimeZone: Europe/Prague version: general

this shows mentioned - default:null
