I want to change the system time for my IPA server from UTC time to local time. Is it
mandatory to restart the service after changing the system time ?
IMHO I'd reboot to ensure that all services on the box pick up the new
timezone, things that aren't affected by ipactl (like cron).
Not my area of expertise but I don't know that a running process will
see a TZ change.
