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
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
* 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
