Time zone change in Solaris

currently, the time zone is set to GMT in my solaris server.
I want to change to EST. i saw /etc/TIMEZONE -- in that it TZ =  ... -15

i substracted . i did TZ =US...-11  ( i kept 11 instead of 15 as the time diff between EST & GMT is 4 hrs)

i restarted the server using  sync; sync; init 6

Also, does the system take day light savings?

Am i wrong? please tell me

If you want daylight saving to take affect, use one of the predefined timezones.  For EST, put

US/Eastern

into /etc/TIMEZONE
