Introduction:

CA Output Management Web Viewer 12.1 is displaying the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) instead of the Local time.

Question:

How to change the time in TOMCAT so it's local rather than the default?

Answer:

In the TOMCAT parameter member or instream data there is section like the one listed below.  Add the indicated line with the time zone you need just above the export command: Replace the "America/Chicago" Or whatever you see there the name of your timezone. 

# Configure JVM options 
IJO="-Xms256m -Xmx4096m" 
IJO="$IJO -Dibm.serversocket.recover=true" 
IJO="$IJO -Dsun.lang.ClassLoader.allowArraySyntax=true" 
IJO="$IJO -Dfile.encoding=ISO8859-1" 
IJO="$IJO -Dcatalina.base=${TOMCAT_HOME}" 
IJO="$IJO -Dcatalina.home=${TOMCAT_HOME}" 
IJO="$IJO -Djava.io.tmpdir=${TOMCAT_HOME}/temp" 
IJO="$IJO -Dactivate.saf.manager=false" 
IJO="$IJO –Duser.timezone=America/Chicago"     <<===============
export IBM_JAVA_OPTIONS="$IJO "
