How do I adjust the timezone of the NetIQ UNIX Agent?


  1. cd to <installdir>/AM/etc
  2. create nqmcustenv.cfg file with TZ environment variable from /etc/environment:  grep TZ /etc/environment > nqmcustenv.cfg
  3. Restart the agent
  4. Check syslog log file and see if the timestamp is correct


The NetIQ UNIX Agent obtains it's timezone from the UNIX shell environment at install. This data is placed into AM/etc/nqmcustenv.cfg
