/etc/localtime not functioning for firewall logging time

I've had this issue whereby the firewall log was showing the incorrect time, regardless of my timezone set in the General settings area ("Americas/Los Angeles"). I had to create a symlink from /usr/share/zoneinfo/PST8PDT to /etc/localtime and reboot the firewall in order for the logging to be corrected. I DID try searching for this issue but came up empty so it may be just this timezone that is errant. Modifying the General setting does update the localtime file in /etc, but logs were showing 8+ or maybe the "feature" of the firewall logging is GMT? Either way, this did the trick so hope it helps some others out.
