This article provides a Node Bootstrap solution to change the timezone of all the nodes associated to a specific cluster in PST (Pacific Standard Time).
Qubole does not recommend the customers to change the standard timezone (Universal Time Coordinated) of the cluster nodes as all the log messages, database entries etc. are stored in UTC timezone.
More details on how to use the Node Bootstrap script for a specific cluster can be found here:
Please use the attached script (should work well with Hadoop 2 and Spark clusters) as the Node Bootstrap script for the cluster where you would like to change the timezone from UTC to PST.
