NAME
       timezone - default timezone data base

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/timezone

DESCRIPTION
       The  timezone  file contains information regarding the default timezone for each host in a
       domain. Alternatively, a single default line for the entire domain  may be specified. Each
       entry has the format:

	 Timezone-name	  official-host-or-domain-name

       Items  are  separated  by  any number of blanks and/or TAB characters. A `#' indicates the
       beginning of a comment; characters up to the end of the line are not interpreted  by  rou-
       tines  which  search  the  file.  The  timezone	is  a  pathname relative to the directory
       /usr/share/lib/zoneinfo.

       This file is not actually referenced by any system software; it is merely used as a source
       file  to  construct the NIS timezone.byname map. This map is read by sysidtool(1M) to ini-
       tialize the timezone of the client system at installation time. For more information,  see
       the Solaris Express Installation Guide: Basic Installations.

       The  timezone  file does not set the timezone environment variable TZ. See TIMEZONE(4) for
       information to set the TZ environment variable.
