How do I change the timezone on Centos 7 to UTC?

CentOS 7 now includes a tool to change the timezone, to view your current timezone run the following command.


This should display the current timezone configuraton. To change this to UTC (or to any other timezone) run the following.

timedatectl set-timezone UTC

You can then re-check the timezone by running the command above again.
