Hi there,

We have a cron job on an Oracle Linux 7 server that should run at 10PM CST every night, but some odd reason, it runs at 3PM MST.  We have checked the cron job details and it does say 21:00, for 9PM.  When I run "date", I get a time that shows CST as the timezone, but the cron job doesn't seem to be checking this.  Anything I should check/configure?
