Updating the timezone on the host does not sync to the AOM, because certain tzdata files are placed in the wrong directories.


Time on the AOM is incorrect.


A system using tzdata version v2016i-1 may encounter this problem. If the following files exist: /usr/share/zoneinfo/posix/zoneinfo/posix/F5zone.tab /usr/share/zoneinfo/right/zoneinfo/right/F5zone.tab /usr/share/zoneinfo/zoneinfo/F5zone.tab then the system has this problem.


If the following files exist: /usr/share/zoneinfo/posix/zoneinfo/posix/F5zone.tab /usr/share/zoneinfo/right/zoneinfo/right/F5zone.tab /usr/share/zoneinfo/zoneinfo/F5zone.tab move them to: /usr/share/zoneinfo/F5zone.tab /usr/share/zoneinfo/posix/F5zone.tab /usr/share/zoneinfo/right/F5zone.tab

Fix Information

Timezone data on AOM now syncs correctly with host again
