Thank u, Per Hedeland and David Woolley i guess all my cuestion at last
have been answred.
Now i see that unix for localtime configured
for files in /usr/share/zoneinfo/  are inversed (GMT-Number act as
GMT+Number, and GMT+Number work like GMT-Number)  this cause bad
date to be written to log files and causes the system to run
tasks out of sync with other systems (database shutdown, by instance),
causing availability problems for systems running in production
backup problems, etc.
