Time Zone Configuration confuses timestamp

I currently encountered a problem that the Time Zone of my client machine is UTC-8 while my PI Server is UTC+8, which certainly caused a problem on timestamp when I was looking archived data through SMT in my Client


But what confused me is after I adjust my Client TZ into UTC+8(same as PI Server) and adjust the time, then restart both client machine and pi server machine, the timestamp in SMT from Client is still 16 hours behind of PI Server time, which means the event is OK (value is correct) but the timestamp is exactly 16 hours behind (e.g. 10:00 AM Jan 10th on PI Server but shows 6:00 PM Jan 9th on Client the same time). I don’t know why my adjustment on TZ doesn’t work at all.


Does anyone has the same experience or could give me some suggestion? Appreciate for that
