Great suggestion… but the time zone does exist.
[kmckinnis@sjspdsupport ~]$ ls /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/Pacific
[kmckinnis@sjspdsupport ~]$ ls /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/
Alaska Aleutian Arizona Central Eastern East-Indiana Hawaii Indiana-Starke Michigan Mountain Pacific Samoa
However, my system time is set to /America/Los_Angeles. You’d think it’d be the same, but for paranoia’s sake, we’ll make them match. Changing the RT config to America/Los_Angeles and rebooting doesn’t seem to have changed the logging away from UTC.From: Jo Rhett [mailto:email@example.com]

Subject: Re: [rt-users] rt system time
Can I force my RT install to use the system time/time zone?
The system time is correct, and /etc/rt/RT_SiteConfig.pm has always been set to Set($Timezone, ‘US/Pacific’);, but I’m noticing that the rt.log is logging 7 hours ahead (GMT?) Should I care? What’s the point of setting the timezone if we’re logging in UTC/GMT?
Is US/Pacific a timezone on your system? For example, I had this same problem until I realized that on FreeBSD I needed to use America/Los_Angeles
ls /usr/share/zoneinfo (or it’s equivalent on your system) will show you the accepted names.
