LinuxSQL 2019 timezones

New Contributor



I was working on Linux SQL 2019 on CentOS8. I created a VM which was in EST timezone and installed SQL. Later I changed the system timezone to IST but SQL timezone remained in EST. I had to restart the services for SQL to sync with system timezone. Is there a way that SQL can update its timezone to system TZ without restarting the services?

@denuvo5 , no, SQL Server pickup the system settings on startup.

Install the OS the right way as required and then SQL Server. Later changes always can cause/requires a restart.
