Comment 3 Ondrej Vasik 2014-02-06 07:12:55 UTC
Setup component has nothing to do with your issue. In addition, bugzilla is not the correct way how to reach Red Hat Enterprise Linux product support, it is direct link to engineering.
Anyway, problem is not clear from your description. System clock uses UTC option has nothing to do with the timezone. This is just something for automated sync when daylight saving time change occurs or if you want to use ntp servers for time synchronization. You probably need to set the correct time first and/or connect to some ntp synchronization server and wait - as it is not immediately changed. 
I'm closing it not a bug - as you didn't described any issue with operating system. doesn't use the system clock time, therefore it shows the correct time. It uses a time from the server. You have to set the time of your computer manually based on the webtime or you have to connect to ntp server with precise enough time (using deployment guide and network time protocol chapter). For manual setting, date or hwclock commands do the job. Read manual pages for these to choose the right options for you (I can't give you good advice, because I don't know if you have only system or both system (doesn't survive reboot) and hwclock (does survive reboot) unsynced with the real time).
