I am using Apache Hive on RedHat. Hive version is 1.2.1. The current Timezone in Hive is EST and I want to convert it to GMT. PS: I want to change the Hive Server Timezone and I am not asking about using a particular function in Hive that can convert EST timezone to GMT timezone.


Hive picks timezone of your JVM, so try changing JVM timezone. Setting "TZ" environment variable should help.

  • I'll check this in my production environment and let you know the updates.
