Why is my Splunk license rolling over at 9pm CST instead of midnight?

We have had issues with going over our license, but it's rolling over at 9pm CST instead of midnight, how do I fix that?

What time zone is set on your license master?

The license rolls based on the time zone set on the license master, so you must have GMT -08:00 set there if you are rolling at 9:00 PM CST.

It should be okay just to change it in the operating system, although you will get one day that is not 24 hours because of it, which will make your license accounting temporarily odd.
