Setting the TimeZone in VMware's VIMA Appliance

After importing the VIMA appliance the time zone is Pacific time. When going to change the time zone you'll discover that they include neither redhat-config-date or timeconfig. So one has to go about it old-school:

[vi-admin@vima ~]$ date
Tue Feb 24 12:37:01 PST 2009
[vi-admin@vima ~]$ sudo rm /etc/localtime
[vi-admin@vima ~]$ sudo ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/America/Detroit /etc/localtime
[vi-admin@vima ~]$ date
Tue Feb 24 15:40:59 EST 2009
