File Transfer Server Log Messages with Wrong Timestamps

File transfer server sft-server-g3 writes syslog messages with incorrect timestamps.

Probably the timezone for USS processes has been set only in /etc/profile, which is sufficient for most USS operations, but it does not get read when sft-server-g3 is launched. Verify that /etc/environment contains a correct timezone declaration.

For example, setting Eastern Standard Time with Daylight Savings Time:

TZ=EST5EDT,M3.2.0/2:00:00,M11.1.0/2:00:00

For more information on the syntax of the TZ variable, see the z/OS USS documentation.
