“Authorization not available”. Check if polkit service is running

One of the most irritant issues for system admins that I have encountered this morning on My Redhat/Centos 7.9 Server . let me show you in easy steps how to solve that and check if the Polkit Service is running.

Here bellow is my issue whe i ran the timedatectl command.

# timedatectl set-timezone Europe/Amsterdam
Authorization not available. Check if polkit service is running or see debug message for more information.
Failed to set time zone: Connection reset by peer

1-First Update your system ( you may use dnf also )

#yum update

2-Install these packages

#yum install setroubleshoot setools

3-Reboot your Server

#shutdown -r now 

4-Check Polkit Services

Now check the polkit services with systemctl

systemctl status polkit
[root@unixcop~]# systemctl status polkit
