    I encounter a strange problem with 3 Cpanel VPS machines.
    I try to adjust the server time in WHM because it is one hour behind (GMT-1) but I can't adjust it, it stays on GMT-1 whatever I select or Sync.

    However Centos/cloudlinux 7 has the correct time.

    I tried :
    rm -f /etc/localtime
    ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Amsterdam /etc/localtime


    # /usr/sbin/ntpdate ntp.ucsd.edu ntp1.cs.wisc.edu
    31 Mar 17:14:53 ntpdate[608397]: adjust time server 132.239.1.6 offset -0.000920 sec


    The time is correct in SSH
    # date
    Thu Mar 31 17:14:56 CEST 2016

    But in WHM it stays on GMT-1
    Thu Mar 31 16:14:56 GMT-1 2016

    It is a KVM VPS on Cloudlinux 7 WHM 54.0 build 21

    Any ideas what could be the cause of this?

    Off course I tried that, that is the whole problem. Whatever I select in WHM >> Server Configuration >> Server Time or Sync the time stays on GMT-1. If I choose Europe/Amsterdam or Australia/Sydney the timezone keeps the same GMT-1.

    Hello :)

    Please ensure you review the considerations for adjusting a time zone or server time for KVM guests:

    Chapter 9. KVM guest timing management

    Let us know if the issue continues after following these guidelines.

    Thank you.
