Provision Fedora CoreOS and configure Time Zone.


  1. Download and verify the latest FCOS next image (pick the right image for your environment).
  2. Figure out what local timezone you'd like to configure.

How to test

  1. Create an Ignition file. When writing the configuration, set a local timezone.
  2. Launch your Fedora CoreOS system using this Ignition file. See the Quickstart and the provisioning docs for a guide how to launch FCOS in most environments (bare metal, virtual, cloud, etc).

Expected Results

  1. You can SSH successfully into your FCOS system.
  2. The FCOS system local time is correct based on the configured timezone in Ignition. Run timedatectl to confirm.
  3. The linked documentation makes sense, nothing is obviously missing, and the instructions are clear.
