Dbvserver Is Showing Different Local Server Time

Follow
Problem Description

Dbvisit Standby is installed on Linux x86_64 and everything is working fine but when using Scheduling from Dbvserver (GUI) it is showing a different Local Server Time. Our time zone is America-Lima (GMT-5). GUI interface is showing five hours of difference, but on the servers the time is OK.

For example:

Linux Server time: 13:30

Dbserver GUI shows Local Server Time: 18:30

Solution

Check whether the TZ variable has been set on your system. At least, in the shell that started Dbvserver. If you wish to try yourself, then just run these commands:

/etc/init.d/dbvserverd stop
export TZ=Pacific-Auckland
/etc/init.d/dbvserverd start

Then go to the About page in the web based GUI and compare the time-date displayed. If this corrects the issue then make sure you set the TZ variable in the shell that starts the Dbvserver process: add the TZ variable to any of the start-up Bash control files /etc/bashrc (or /etc/bashrc.local) or /etc/profile to make the change permanent.

If the database is running on RAC, then this action needs to be done on all nodes.

Note

There is a file called dbvserver.conf and this contains

date_time_zone =

This config variable date_time_zone is now obsolete. The correct date and time is controlled by the setting of the shell variable TZ.
