If the organization decides to use timedatectl, deleting /etc/sysconfig/clock is a valid approach.
- Setting the timezone via /etc/sysconfig/clock and linking /usr/share/zoneinfo/$TIMEZONE to /etc/localtime is the traditional one, used by YaST.- Then also timedatectl, the modern solution invented by systemd.
In the long run /etc/sysconfig/clock will be obsolete and the affected parts of YaST rewritten.
