This page will explain how to set the time that NMIS and OMK applications use to display data.
NMIS will display data relative to the local system time of the server that it is running on. The best method of changing local time on the server varies based on the Operating System.
Find the desired timezone in the /usr/share/timezone directory.
Debian Based Systems
Use the dpkg-reconfigure utility with the tzdata argument
This will launch a GUI in the terminal and guide the user through the process.
By default OMK applications will use the timezone that the server has been provisioned for. To change the time that OMK applications use to display data, opCommon.nmis needs to be udpated. Any timezone declaration from one of the following sources may be used:
- ISO 8601 TZ designators, e.g. "+10:00" or "+1000"
- TZ names from the Olson Database, e.g. "Europe/Paris".
- or the special value "
If the config item '
omkd_display_timezone' is not present or blank, then the server timezone is used and times are shown without the timezone suffix.
If it is set to "
local", then the server timezone is used but the applications show all times with the timezone suffix appended.
To adjust the timezone settting, edit
conf/opCommon.nmis and insert a key called '
omkd_display_timezone' in the
omkd section. Associate the desired timezone name with it as show below.
This method currently works for all OMK modules except Open-AudIT Enterprise.
