I live in Seattle, and the timezone settings I use in Linux are the settings for Los Angeles. I am not quite sure what happened exactly, but I would guess some update I ran broke the Los Angeles file…
I only noticed the issue when some cronjobs were firing off early.. and some posts in a forum had odd dates.
[root@server home]# date
Mon Dec 27 01:36:33 UTC 2010
Well it’s 5:36 here, and it should say PST not UTC. So 5:36+ 8hours is 1:36 UTC. The date and time is correct, there is just something wrong with the timezone.

The first thing I recommend doing on your Linux VM server is running yum update. If you run ‘yum update’ after the installation you could see:
Kernel Panic after Yum Update – CentOS with Hyper-V Linux Integration Components, which would probably just add a few extra headaches.
Next, go to Microsoft, download and extract the Linux Integration Services package.
Next, install the Linux Integration Components:
Load the Linux Integration Components v2.1 iso into your VM.
When logged in as root, run:

I am runnning CentOS 5.5 in a VM on Hyper-V. I created a fresh installation. I then installed Hyper-V Linux Integration Components. After Installing them I ran yum update.
After running a “yum update”, and rebooting I received this error.
Unable to access resume device (/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01)
mount: could not find filesystem '/dev/root'
setuproot: moving /dev failed: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /proc: No such file or directory
setuproot: error mounting /sys: No such file or directory
switchroot: mount failed: No such file or directory
Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!
During the yum update process, it updated my kernel. Kernels that are installed after Hyper-V Linux Integration Components don’t always mesh well together. Here is how I fixed my issue.

If you are building PHP from source on a new server, you might run into few linux prerequisites before you can complete a ./configure. You might not need all of these, or you might need more depending on how much stuff you are including in your configure line. Here is how to fix a good majority of the issues you might run into on Centos 5.
