Title says everything. I've tried all the normal *nix tools for this (rdate, date etc. which say operation not permitted), copied timezone file /etc/localtime etc.

How do you change the timezone for VE?

Solution:

Stop VE vzctl stop 101

in HD node, run:

vzctl set 101 --capability sys_time:on --save

Start VE: vzctl start 101

Enter VE: vzctl enter 101

mv /etc/localtime /etc/localtime.old
ln -s /usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Helsinki /etc/localtime

date 092115442006 (09 = Month, 21 = day, 15 = hour, 44=minutes, 2006 = year)

run date to check your time is right. That's it!
